The University of Connecticut and Tailgate Guys are excited to announce a new partnership to provide premium tailgating at Pratt & Whitney Stadium for UConn football games beginning this fall. This new addition is sure to enhance the game day experience with turnkey tailgating in Hartford for the 2017 football season.  

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!”  

David Benedict, University of Connecticut’s Athletic Director, said of the partnership: “There is a great tradition among UConn football fans tailgating at Pratt & Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field. 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 gameday experience!”  

Tailgate packages will be available exclusively to Husky Club members during a priority reservation period. Once the priority reservation period has concluded, all remaining packages will be available to the public on July 10th.
