The Big East’s final four teams scorch the nets at Red Bull Arena, dribbling and kicking their way to the conference’s automatic bid for the NCAA Division I men’s soccer championship. After racking up glory and grass stains in a single-elimination tournament played at campus fields, the remaining contenders square off in three games that promise more hands-free excitement than bobbing for apples in a shark tank. Louisville exudes confidence after winning 2010’s championship, and Connecticut looks to etch their names into the tournament’s annals for the first time since 2007. Meanwhile, St. John’s and Villanova strike terror into the stitch-paneled hearts of opposing goalies as they try to convert their tournament berths into championship success.
Fans stationed in lower-midfield sections of the 25,000-seat Red Bull Arena can shout out complex physics equations to help their favorite student athletes determine the proper arc for corner kicks. A dynamic form roof covers all the seating, protecting attendees from rain showers and ensuring soccer balls kicked high in the air do not damage any errant satellites.
