Home of the University of Connecticut Huskies, Rentschler Field is one of the newest college football stadiums in Division-1 football. Prior to moving into Rentschler Field, the Huskies played at the 16,000 seat Memorial Stadium. Named after Fredrick Rentschler, construction began on their new stadium in November 2001. At a cost of $91.2 million, Rentschler Field was completed two years later. The Huskies played their inaugural first game at the stadium on August 30, 2003 against the Indiana Hoosiers.

Rentschler Field seats a modest number of 38,000 fans. The main lower grandstand circles the entire playing field and a second deck is located on three sides of the field. On the open end of the upper deck is the main scoreboard. Located on the south side of the stadium atop the second deck is the three tier press box. Other than containing an area for the press, it also houses club seats and 38 luxury suites.
