Huskies Partner With MIlitary Match Program
Nov. 1, 2017
STORRS, Conn. - As part of Military Appreciation Day at the Saturday, Nov. 4 football game vs. USF, the UConn Division of Athletics has collaborated with the UConn Office of Veterans Affairs and Military Programs and Vet Tix on several initiatives including the Military Match Program.
The University of Connecticut's Office of Veterans Affairs and Military Programs provides a full range of benefits and services to students that have served or continue to serve in our Armed Forces. Vet Tix provides tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and other fun activities to current and retired military families in order to reduce stress, strengthen family bonds and build life-long memories.
Every single-game ticket purchased beginning Monday, Oct. 30 will be matched by UConn with a donated ticket to active and retired military members in the local and surrounding communities. Season ticket holders or previous single game buyers can also either purchase a ticket to donate for $10 or can transfer their game ticket to donate if their tickets can no longer be used.
You can purchase single game tickets online at UConnTickets.com, by calling 877-AT-UCONN (288-2666) or by visiting us on campus at the ticket office at 2111 Hillside Road. The ticket office is located in between the Wolff-Zackin Natatorium and the UConn Rec Center. To transfer your ticket, please visit UConnHuskies.com.
Throughout the game there will be a number of in-game features to honor and recognize active and retired military members as part of Military Appreciation Day including presenting the Colossal Colors prior to the game, video board features and fan giveaways.
UConn fans may submit photos or video of military friends or family members for the chance to be shown on the video board during the game. Please email any photos or video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get in the game early for a Donald Brown bobblehead giveaway, the final in a series of three this season! Bobbleheads will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last.
