After a couple of years at a minor league baseball stadium, the men's College Cup is returning to soccer-specific grounds.
PPL Park will host the 2013 men's College Cup, the NCAA announced on Wednesday. This past year's tournament was held at Regions Park in Hoover, Ala., the stadium for the Chicago White Sox Double-A affiliate Birmingham Barons. The 2012 event will be held there as well.
The 2013 tournament, which will be hosted by Villanova University, will mark the fifth time that the event will be held at an MLS soccer-specific stadium. The College Cup was hosted by Crew Stadium in 2001 and 2003, the Home Depot Center in 2004 and Pizza Hut Park in 2008.
WakeMed Park in Cary, N.C., was selected to host the 2013 women's College Cup.
