Florida-Kentucky soccer moved to Daytona Beach on Thursday

The Florida Gators and Kentucky Wildcats were supposed to meet in Gainesville on Thursday in an important match for both sides.

That match will now be held at Embry-Riddle Soccer Stadium at 5:00 PM on that day.

The reason for the move is due to the visit of alt-right leader Richard Spencer. Spencer is scheduled to speak on the UF campus from 2:30-4:30 PM. With numerous protests planned for the visit Florida governor Rick Scott has declared a State of Emergency in Alachua County, allowing for the National Guard to be on alert.

Florida (11-4, 5-2 in the SEC) will enter the match in fourth place in the SEC standings while Kentucky (7-10, 2-5 in the SEC) is ninth. Only ten teams attend the SEC tournament in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Florida has lost its last two games and has dropped to #20 in the national rankings.
