Hartford, CT – The past two season have seen the Hartford City Football Club play at Central Connecticut State University located in New Britain. While the school has serviced the club well since the team first started playing, growth and desire from the fan base made exploring new venues a priority. A decision to move in the off-season was made to re-locate the home stadium to University of Hartford.
The official announcement took place on campus “We’re very excited to be announcing this at the University where we will be playing, it’s a big milestone for our club,” said Director of Football Nick Balistierri. “We’ve been looking to play closer to the capital city in a top-notch stadium and to be here makes it even more special.”
As a Hartford and Connecticut team, there’s an importance for Hartford City to play closer to the community it represents, paying homage to the rich history and traditions of the state, while simultaneously being an agent of change, and ultimately, a symbol of Greater Hartford.
