Why not just play at EO Smith? I read on twitter that it's gonna cost money to play at the Rent. And why not play in the afternoon seeing there's gonna be snow?
They would have had to be pre-approved (maybe UH/CCSC has a facility profile on file) and check all the boxes for field/stadium ops, locker/medical facilities etc... https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/championships/sports/soccer/d1/men/2018-19DIMSO_PreChamps-Manual.pdfSoccer on a Thursday night in a potential Nor'easter is going to result in a very empty Rent. I know there's pride involved, but, what about looking at Marzook at U Hartford, Sage in Berlin, or Veterans in New Britian?
I know U HaHa hosted NCAA tournaments back in the 1990's and I do recall a UConn playing a 'home' game at Veteran's in the '90's, too. Of course, that was 20 years ago, yikes.They would have had to be pre-approved (maybe UH/CCSC has a facility profile on file) and check all the boxes for field/stadium ops, locker/medical facilities etc... https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/championships/sports/soccer/d1/men/2018-19DIMSO_PreChamps-Manual.pdf https://ncaaorg.s3.amazonaws.com/championships/sports/soccer/d1/men/2018-19DIMSO_HostOpsManual.pdf
I recall a UConn women's soccer game being played at University of Hartford sometime last decade.

The Hartford Courant and a couple other papers will do the occasional article on the UConn men's soccer team. I don't recall seeing much on UConn soccer in the past from any of the Hearst papers in Connecticut, so it is good to see this coverage.Fuller: Ray Reid has UConn soccer back in NCAA Tournament after two-year absence
>>When Reid looks at the failure to earn NCAA Tournament bids in 2016 and ’17, he feels as if he needs to do nothing more than to look in the mirror.
“Our goal is to make the tournament every year. The last two years, I failed,” Reid said. “I failed the program, I failed the athletic department that we didn’t make the tournament.
“I’m in charge; it’s on me and it’s not on anybody else. The guys have earned us back in and we want to win some games. It’s a great group of guys, we’re much closer to where we need to be. The mentality has changed, we’ve gotten real winners back in the program right now.”<<
