[BIG EAST TOURNAMENT] The East East has moved its men's soccer championship to the Philadelphia Union's PPL Park in Chester, Pa. The tournament, which begins with Friday's semifinals -- No. 6 Georgetown against No. 7 Marquette and No. 5 Notre Dame, against No. 8  Connecticut --  was moved from Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., where it had been held the previous two years. Northern New Jersey was hit hard by Sandy.

The semifinals will be held at at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. ET and televised on CBS Sports Network. Sunday's title game will be broadcast live via BIG EAST.tv, as well as numerous regional sports networks.

“It is great of PPL Park to step up in adverse times,” said Big East Associate Commissioner for Olympic Sports Jim Siedliski. “Our heartfelt wishes go out to the areas affected by the storm last week. PPL Park is a state-of-the-art facility that will give our student-athletes a great postseason experience.”

Tickets that were previously purchased through Red Bull Arena will be honored at PPL Park. Tickets went on sale Tuesday and can be ordered online at www.comcasttix.com or www.PhiladelphiaUnion.com. To order tickets over the phone, call Comcast Tix at 1-800-298-4200. Tickets can also be purchased at the PPL Park Box Office, with no convenience fees.
