HYPEd On UConn Football vs Missouri

Join us for our HYPEd On UConn Football vs Missouri game! We will be tailgating at the Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Club and attending the Saturday, October 28th UConn vs Missouri game!

The Pratt & Whiteny Aircraft Club, located at 200 Clement Road, East Hartford, will be reserving parking spots for HYPEsters attending the game so that we can all park in the same area and tailgate together. This is first come, first serve and parking is $20 per car. We encourage you to car pool or take Uber or Lyft to lower your parking costs. The parking lot is directly across the street from the stadium and will only be a short walk to the game!

If you don’t want to park in the Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Club, no problem! There is plenty of parking in the area. Click on this link (http://www.rentschlerfield.com/assets/doc/Pratt-Whitney-Stadium-Parking-Map-a819ffb447.pdf) to see a map. You can also use that link to see where the Aircraft Club is in relation to the stadium.

This tailgate is BYOT (Bring Your Own Tailgate)! Be sure to bring your own tables, chairs, food, beverages and games. HYPE will NOT be providing these materials. Come prepared!

Your registration will get you (1) ticket to the UConn vs Missouri football game, and the opportunity to tailgate with your fellow HYPEsters! You WILL have to come to the Air Craft Club to pick up your ticket on game day to get into the stadium. If you choose to park elsewhere you will still have to stop by the Air Craft Club to pick up your ticket, and if you haven’t picked up your ticket 45mins before the game starts your ticket will be waiting for you at Will Call.

If you have any questions or concerns you can contact Program Director, Jackie Valliere, at jvalliere@metrohartford.com or at 860-728-2294.
