The Colonial Column: UFL Continues Focus on Fan Experience

By Dan Canavan

The first sentence of the UFL’s mission statement reads as follows:

The UFL provides high-quality professional football during a traditional fall season while embracing innovation and fan interaction.

With the Hartford Colonials yet to play a game, it is premature to discuss the quality of the football.  But we can take notice that the UFL continues its efforts to bring fans closer to the action.  The latest example is in the form of a an open house, on August 29, from 2-6 p.m. at Rentschler Field.  The open house will give fans an opportunity to choose the best available seats for the upcoming 2010 season.  Select players will be in attendance, and admission and parking at the stadium will be free.  The open house will give fans an opportunity to test drive their new seats, and purchase tickets. Fans who are already season ticket holders are invited to view their seats and have the option to move to a different location.

Practices will continue to be open to the public.  On Saturday, August 28 the Colonials will be practicing at Coginchaug High School in Durham from 9-11 a.m.  Fans will be given the opportunity to watch two new additions to the squad.  The Colonials signed former Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins RB Lorenzo Booker (Florida State).   Booker was a third-round draft pick by the Dolphins in 2007.  The Colonials have also signed Center Ryan Blaszczyk (Rutgers), who had been in the Detroit Lions’ rookie mini-camp this year.
