    Hey,

    Ive only went to one UConn football game, but was looking into going to some games next year, what is the best way to get some good seats? I would prefer the Chairbacks, how much do those normally run? I cant find information on the pricing.

    Any other tips on which seats people find the best is appreciated. Thanks!

    Wow, I like some of the new benefits a lot. They are trying. I love the 5 hour tailgate window that they started this year. I can't wait for the season to start!

    Do these perks apply to Young Alumni ST holders? I had Young Alumni tickets last year and I feel like I didn't have any of these perks (Maybe they're all new?)

    Be advised that chair backs require a $300 or something donation that isn't include in what they show online.

    Any idea on the 3 or 4 game pricing plans for some Upper/Lower Chairbacks? I tried the website but it leads to a page with nothing currently.

    Ah I figured, thanks for the help, appreciate it. Only been to the rent once and I want to say I sat in some bleachers, any opinions on what seats you or other people prefer?

    My season tickets are in the Preferred section on the aisle next to mezzanine chairbacks and been on the same side/same area since Rent opened. They work great for me but I do long for the sunny side in November sometimes.

    I dont think they have 3-4 game plans for any chairbacks. I have season tixs in Sec 207 $25 per game and no seat donation. we bring our own stadium chair and works out great.

    Stay away from section 241. A lot of drunken eletist type folks from the Gold Coast. :D

    .....and they might be liberals too.

    Anywhere else is fine.

    Same here, we're in 218- been for years. We bring the seat backs in and its fine. I kind of wish UConn had the option to buy your own personal seat back for the season with you name on it that could be kept in the stadium for gamedays already setup like some of the bigger SEC schools do.

    My tickets are in a different spot each year typically I sit in 219 which is in the corner-ish near the band. Really nice vantage point. Worst seats I had were in the fourth row of the endzone under the scoreboard. I think section 130? No angle on the field down that low especially in the endzone and I had to turn around to even see the scoreboard! Great seats if you like the dance team though

    Anyone pony up the $100 online yet? Curious as to whether the hockey tickets come up automatically as a comp.

    Does anyone know when seat donations are paid if the donation counts for 2016-2017 or 2017-2018?

    Saw a bunch of people ponying up for season tickets at the presser yesterday. That was a good sign.
