    EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - The University of Connecticut and Infinity Radio hosted a successful open house for fans at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, UConn’s new football home, on Saturday, June 14.

    Approximately 10,000 fans were allowed into seating areas for their first glimpse at the brand-new stadium, which is still under construction, while many also toured the press box tower’s club and suite levels. The fans gobbled up 5,000 free hot dogs, along with Coca-Cola products, at the event while also purchasing a couple of hundred season tickets.

    All four of Infinity’s Hartford-area stations (WTIC 1080-AM, WTIC 96.5-FM, WZMX 93.7-FM and WRCH 100.5-FM) were on site.

    The UConn football team will open play at Rentschler Field on August 30 when the Huskies play host to Indiana of the Big Ten Conference. Other UConn home games next season include Boston College (Sept. 13), Lehigh (Oct. 4), Akron (Oct. 25), Western Michigan (Nov. 1) and Rutgers (Nov. 8).
