Football fans who believe Rob Gronkowski will return to the gridiron, take note: Gronk is hosting an official retirement party next month.
Gronkowski, 33, who won three Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, will be the featured guest at the bash hosted by Mohegan Sun FanDuel Sportsbook in Montville, Connecticut, on Sept. 10, WFSB-TV reported.
Tickets to enjoy Gronkowski’s sendoff are $75, according to the Mohegan Sun website. The party begins at 9 p.m. EDT and runs for two hours. Disc jockey Whoo Kid will spin records during the party, Mohegan Sun said.
The celebration will also mark the debut of the “Gronk Smash Burger,” WTIC-TV reported.
An after-party will begin at 11:30 p.m. EDT at Mohegan Sun’s Avalon Nightclub, according to CT Insider.
Gronkowski announced his retirement on June 21 after 11 seasons in the NFL.
“I will now be going back into my retirement home, walking away from football again with my head held high knowing I gave it everything I had, good or bad, every time I stepped out on the field,” Gronkowski, a second-round draft pick by the Patriots in 2010, wrote in an Instagram post.
Gronkowski played nine seasons with the Patriots and sat out the 2019 season before rejoining quarterback Tom Brady for two seasons with the Buccaneers.
