Dear Husky Fans,
I hope you enjoyed the excitement around early signing day and are looking forward to another season of UConn Football as Coach Edsall continues to build and instill his culture into this program. The 2018 season will be here before we know it and I am excited to share what we have planned for you as we continue our efforts to maximize value for you and improve the gameday experience.
We understand you love supporting the Huskies, but we also know spending time with friends and family in the tailgate lots and at the stadium is also important to you, so please take a few minutes to review what’s new this year.
First off, as we continue to assess and improve the overall fan experience to provide maximum value, we are reducing the majority of season ticket prices by 10% for the 2018 season. Season tickets in our Family Section will be reduced even more, an average of 28%, and separate adult and youth ticket prices have been eliminated to ensure affordable pricing for families in 2018.
I believe in the program Coach Edsall is building and your support goes a long way toward helping him do that. We want to ensure you see the entertainment value in coming out and passionately supporting our coaches and student-athletes as they continue to improve.
Additionally, this year we are excited to offer our most passionate fans a Priority Renewal Discount of an additional 10% if you renew by the Priority Renewal Deadline of March 1, resulting in a total 2018 decrease of 20% (36% for Family Section tickets). The Priority Renewal Deadline Pricing applies only to 2017 season ticket holders renewing season tickets and can be used for added seat locations as well. We look forward to hearing from you by then so you can make your dollar go even further.
Please consult the table on the renewal site to review your season ticket prices as compared to last season. Our representatives are looking forward to discussing these price decreases with you as well as our payment plan that allows you to spread your investment over four payments. For the second straight year we are offering our popular 3-D seat selection tool through an online, virtual venue for your convenience. Beginning in May you will have the option to upgrade or relocate your seats.
Another change you will notice is the F.I.T. Fee has now been included in the ticket price rather than broken out separately. We made this change to make it easier for you to quickly see your total price. As an update, last season you contributed more than $355,000 in football-related F.I.T. Fees. On behalf of the department, staff, coaches and student-athletes I want to thank you and share our gratitude.
Many of the UConn Football season tickets require a Rentschler Field Seat Donation that supports the Husky Athletic Fund. As many of you are aware, under the new federal tax law that took effect January 1, 2018, the tax treatment of donations that result in the right to purchase tickets for seating at athletic events has been modified. UConn Athletics recommends you consult a tax professional concerning the tax treatment of your donation. For questions, please contact the Husky Athletic Office at (860) 486-3863 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your generous gift to the Husky Athletic Fund supports the athletic and academic development of UConn Student-Athletes. Through your donation, you are providing essential resources such as scholarships, academic support resources, career preparation, nutrition, sports medicine and equipment to Connecticut’s future community and business leaders.
I look forward to another season of your passion and partnership as we work toward continued and additional success both on and off the field.

Facilities Investment Together (F.I.T.)
New for 2018, you will notice the Facilities Investment Together (F.I.T.) Fee has now been included in the ticket price rather than broken out separately. We made this change to make it easier for you to quickly see your total price.
The Facilities Investment Together (F.I.T.) Fee is a modest per ticket fee that was implemented in 2017 across all Husky ticketed sports to support the enhancement of Athletics facilities to better serve UConn student-athletes and fans.
As an update, last season you contributed more than $355,000 in football-related F.I.T. Fees and over $788,000 to date for the 2017-2018 year in all athletic-related F.I.T. Fees.
Seats For Soldiers
Support our local military service members through Seats for Soldiers. While renewing your season tickets, donate $10 that will go towards the purchase of tickets for military personnel to attend UConn Athletic events through a partnership with Vet Tix. Vet Tix is a national 501c3 nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide tickets to sporting events, concerts, performing arts and family activities aimed at improving mental welfare and enriching the lives of military service members and veterans. With your purchase, Vet Tix will send you an “In Kind Gift Receipt”.

New this year, fans can add a Husky Seat seatback during the season ticket renewal process to make ordering easier. Wondering which cushion you need to order? Have no fear. Whether you are ordering with your season ticket or online at Husky Seats, you will automatically be assigned the correct cushion for your ticket location.
Fans can lease a season long Husky Seat that will be installed 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 while also providing premium comfort for all of the gridiron action.
Buy early and save! The season-long seatback costs $40 if ordered by July 1, $45 if ordered between July 2 to August 1 and $50 after August 1. The single game rental will be $10 per seatback.
Located on the 3rd floor of Pratt and Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field, the Club Level premium seating area features climate-controlled, indoor chairback seating and an exclusive hospitality area between the 20 yard lines.
Season tickets in the Club Level include a complimentary gameday buffet that is served through halftime as well as one season parking pass for each pair of season tickets purchased in the Gold parking lot, the parking lot nearest the Club Level stadium entrance (Gate A).
Two cash bars and complimentary non-alcoholic beverages (coffee, tea and water) are available through the start of the third quarter. Other amenities include 18 flat screen HDTV’s, a snack bar and access into the stadium beginning 2 hours prior to game time.
As a season ticket holder, you will experience UConn Football gameday with a first-class view of the field from one of the most comfortable seats in the stadium! The Club Level caters to those who don’t want to miss any of the gridiron action from some of the best seats in the house, and to those who prefer to be in a social setting on gameday with high top tables and a large dining area to socialize with friends, family, colleagues, etc.
