Saturday’s soccer game between Hawaii and the state of San Jose will be played at Aloha Stadium, according to a tweet from the UH soccer program.

The game was initially to be played at the CEFCU Stadium in San Jose, California.

But new coronavirus-related restrictions forced the state of San Jose to seek a new location. Santa Clara County has imposed a rule that will not allow sports-related activities, such as workouts and games, for the next three weeks.

It appeared that the game would not be played in Hawaii, as the ruling also requires travelers from outside 150 miles to be quarantined for 14 days.

But both schools apparently reached an agreement to move the game to Aloha Stadium.

“We have explored many venue and date options for this competition over the past 48 hours,” said San Jose State Athletic Director Marie Tuite in a press release. “Moving the game from San Jose to Honolulu became the best option based on our county and current state public health guidelines. We want to thank many people involved in the decision-making process, and there were many – our college board, the Mountain West office, and the conference schools that supported them. “

No start time has been set.
