Connecticut is getting the biggest game guarantee in school history to move a home game vs. Boston College in 2017 to Fenway Park.
UConn’s game vs. BC was announced Thursday along with a matchup between Massachusetts and Maine as college football games at the historic stadium of the Boston Red Sox. As part of the deal, UConn gets a guarantee of $1.125 million to move a home game and rights to 22,000 of the nearly 40,000 tickets that will be available.
“We are thrilled to take part in the continuation of what we hope will be a long-time partnership with the Fenway Group and the Boston Red Sox,” UConn athletic director David Benedict said in a statement. “This game will present our players an unforgettable experience playing in one of the most-renowned venues in American sport and provide UConn fans with a front row seat. We could not be happier to take part.”
