EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - The University of Connecticut vs. Fordham football game will now be played at noon on Saturday, Sept. 3 at Rentschler Field. The game was originally scheduled for Thursday night but was postponed. All tickets and parking passes for the originally scheduled date will be honored Saturday afternoon. Parking lots will open at 8:00 a.m. with stadium gates opening at 10:30 a.m.
The game had been postponed from Thursday, Sept. 1 as stadium is currently being used by the Connecticut National Guard for use as a commodities distribution center to provide towns and cities of the state that are in need of essential supplies in the wake of Tropical Storm Irene. Through the cooperation of United Technologies Corporation, it will be possible to have both the football game and the relief efforts run concurrently on Saturday.
Patrons are encouraged to arrive early as there is ongoing development in the Rentschler Field area, in addition to some new traffic patterns on property. Parking pass holders should follow the entry instructions on the back of your parking pass to avoid possible delays. For more information, please visit rentschlerfield.com.
In conjunction with the radio "home of the Huskies", WTIC NewsTalk 1080, discounted tickets priced at $10 each will be available for the game. To order, go to UConnHuskies.com. Promotional tickets quantities are limited. This special offer will also be available at the Rentschler Field Box Office on Saturday beginning at 8:00 a.m., while supplies last.
