STORRS, Conn. - UConn football fans will have two new opportunities to enhance their game day experience in 2017.
UConn and "Tailgate Guys" are excited to announce a new partnership to provide premium tailgating at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field beginning this fall. This new addition brings the option of turnkey tailgating to Husky games.
Ticket holders will also be able to rent Husky Seat seats through a new partnership with IMG College Seating. This program allows you to pay for a seatback to be installed at your seat prior to the season and have it remain there all year long.
UConn And "Tailgate Guys"
For the past eight years, Tailgate Guys has been offering guests first-class, turnkey tailgate experiences and is proud to offer the same opportunity to Husky fans this year.
UConn patrons now have the option to purchase tailgate packages, which include premium parking spaces, tents, chairs, tables, linens and options for amenities such as televisions and personal signage.
"There is a great tradition among UConn football fans tailgating at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field," said UConn Director of Athletics David Benedict. "Hours before and after Husky games loyal supporters are enjoying all the activities that make college football a special event. Tailgate Guys offer a high-quality and convenient service to those who might not have the time to prepare their own tailgate party or simply want to enhance the occasion. To be sure, the Tailgate Guys are a dynamic addition to the game day experience!"
Parker Duffey, Tailgate Guys' President, and CEO commented on this new expansion: "We love bringing new colleges into the Tailgate Guys family. With each new college, we get to grow our brand and bring exciting tailgate experiences to a new fan base. It is an exciting time for us!"

UConn And "Husky Seats"
Fans can now lease a season long Husky Seat at Husky football games and have it installed for them before the season begins and it remains there the entire year! This eliminates the hassle of picking up your seatback before each game and putting it in yourself and provides premium comfort for all of the gridiron action.
The chair backs can be ordered at HuskySeats.com or by calling 844-331-5066. The season-long seatback costs $40 if ordered before July 21, 2017, $45 if ordered between July 22 and August 25 and $50 after August 25.
The seatback style will be allocated based off of the type of seating for each ticket holder. Single-game seatback rentals will still be available at the stadium for the price of $10 per game.
IMG College Seating has been in operation since 1998 and offers a quality product with a high level of personal service. The seat program allows sports fans to enjoy their gameday experience to the fullest with not only comfortable seating to loyal fans, but a high quality fan service.
