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.
