University of Connecticut Selects Anthony Travel for Athletic Travel Services
Anthony Travel, the nationally recognized and award-winning leader in collegiate sports travel management, announced a new multi-year partnership with UConn Athletics. Anthony Travel will serve as official travel provider and provide comprehensive travel services for the University of Connecticut Athletic Department.
“Anthony Travel is the national leader for collegiate athletic travel,” said David Benedict, University of Connecticut Director of Athletics. “They have a unique understanding of how to service athletic departments and the challenges that come with moving coaches, student-athletes and staff all around the country. UConn looks forward to an exciting future with Anthony Travel and all that they offer.”
Through this partnership, UConn Athletics will benefit from an Anthony Travel account manager dedicated exclusively to the UConn Athletic Department travel management needs, including hotel accommodations, scheduled air, charter air, ground transportation, international team tours, and other services as requested. The Anthony Travel account manager will be based on site in the Huskies’ Athletic Department.
UConn and Anthony Travel recently partnered for the Huskies’ Women’s Basketball foreign tour of Italy in August. Anthony Travel managed the travel logistics, sightseeing tours and arranged competitive games for their 12 day 10 night trip.
“UConn athletics strives to give their student-athletes the opportunity to excel in academic achievement and athletic accomplishments,” said John Anthony, President and CEO of Anthony Travel. “As their travel partner, we are ecstatic to help them achieve this goal by providing outstanding travel services to Huskies’ coaches, student-athletes and staff. We believe this partnership will help UConn athletics continue to excel both in the classroom and on the playing field by managing their time and travel efficiently and with high class service.”
Anthony Travel is also the year-round travel partner for more than 75 athletic departments nationwide. In addition to the University of Connecticut, Anthony Travel serves as the official travel partner for three other universities in the American Athletic Conference: the University of Central Florida, East Carolina University and Southern Methodist University.
