Virginia Softball opens the season on Saturday at Georgia in the Red and Black Showcase in a two-day event which features two matchups each against Georgia and South Alabama.

The following weekend, Virginia will take part in ACC pod action, playing three games against both Louisville and Pittsburgh. The games will take place in Raleigh-Durham on Feb. 18-21, and these games count in the ACC standings.

Virginia then opens its home schedule on Feb. 27-28 by hosting the Cavalier Classic. The two-day tournament features contests against JMU and George Washington.

In 2021, the ACC will also play four-game weekend series to minimize travel. ACC series will feature single games on Friday and Sunday with a doubleheader scheduled for Saturday. The Cavaliers are scheduled to host Clemson (March 5-7), NC State (March 19-21), Boston College (April 1-3) and Syracuse (April 23-25) in ACC action at Palmer Park. Virginia is slated to travel to Duke (March 12-14), North Carolina (April 9-11), Notre Dame (April 16-18) and Georgia Tech (April 30-May 2).

Virginia is scheduled to play just four midweek contests in 2021, facing Virginia Tech and Liberty each twice. The Cavaliers will host the Hokies on March 9 before visiting Blacksburg on March 24. Both games against the Hokies are non-conference matchups. Virginia faces Liberty on the road on March 23 before hosting the Flames on April 6.
