The Hartford Athletic Community Ticket Program provides tickets to those who might otherwise not have a chance to attend a match. In 2019, this program provided 4,000+ tickets to over 20 programs.
Each year Hartford Athletic dedicates one of its matches to raise awareness and funds for an important cause. Over the first two seasons, Hartford Athletic and Founding Partner Stanley Black & Decker have teamed up to support Gender Equality and Youth Education raising a combined nearly $25,000 for Girls For Technology and Boys and Girls Clubs of Hartford.
In partnership with Travelers, Hartford Athletic has established the Community Champion Program which donates a special group experience at a Hartford Athletic match to those who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend. In addition, Hartford Athletic and Travelers teamed up on the Travelers Free Kick campaign which is an initiative where Hartford Athletic sets up at locations throughout Hartford promoting contests for tickets, merchandise and more.
Hartford Athletic and Founding Partner Cigna have teamed up to create the Every Save Matters Program.
