UConn Announces Dates and Locations for Second-Annual Coaches Road Show
Tour of Connecticut Includes Stops in Six Cities
This May, the UConn Huskies Coaches Road Show, driven by Premier Limousine, will return for a second year and embark on a six-city tour of Connecticut. The Road Show, co-hosted by UConn Athletics and the UConn Foundation, runs from May 21-23, and will include visits to Mystic, Branford, Waterbury, Torrington, Hartford and Stamford.
The Road Show will once again provide the opportunity for coaches and administrators to spend time connecting and interacting with fans, alumni, donors and UConn supporters throughout the Nutmeg State.
“The UConn Huskies Coaches Road Show was a great showcase for UConn athletics last year and I am excited for the opportunity to participate in an expanded Road Show this spring,” director of athletics David Benedict said. “Our coaches and staff had a great time interacting with members of UConn Nation last year and I know they are looking forward to visiting with even more of our supporters this year.”
The Road Show will commence from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, May 21, at Latitude 41 River Room in Mystic. Wednesday, May 22 will feature three stops with the first occurring from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at Stony Creek Brewery in Branford and will be followed by a visit to Buffalo Wild Wings in Waterbury from 3-4:30 p.m.
The Waterbury stop will be unique in that the programming will be in conjunction with the live broadcast of The Rob Dibble Show on iHeart’s 97.9 ESPN. Fans will still be able to mingle with UConn head coaches and administrators during the show with no cost to attend but registration is required. Food and beverages will be available for purchase. The day will conclude with a trip to the Warner Theatre in Torrington from 6-8 p.m.
The final day will also include two stops, beginning with a breakfast stop at the Yard Goats Club Level of Dunkin’ Donuts Park in Hartford from 7:30-9:30 a.m. The second-annual UConn Huskies Coaches Road Show will then come to a close at Chelsea Piers in Stamford, an event that will run from 7-9 p.m.
