Joseph J. Morrone Stadium at Rizza Performance Center is home to UConn men’s and women’s soccer and the women’s lacrosse program.

The stadium is named after former UConn men’s soccer coach, Joe Morrone. Morrone led the Huskies for 28 seasons, had a record of 358-178-53, advanced to three straight national semifinals in 1981-1983, and won the national championship in 1981. Morrone, a member of the NSCAA Hall of Fame, retired from coaching in 1996.
