UW-Green Bay plays soccer as its primary fall sport primarily on the advice of the late Vince Lombardi. The legendary Packers coach was an athletics adviser to Chancellor Edward Weidner in 1967-68 when the new university was charting its athletics future. Lombardi advised against college football because of its relatively high cost and the likelihood that the university team would be overshadowed by the Packers He also believed in soccer’s long-term growth potential and the prospects for UWGB success at the highest level of NCAA competition (which proved true).
