Breaking Ground: Dillon Stadium
The city of Hartford was out in full force for the ground breaking of Dillon Stadium. The Governor and Mayor of Hartford among other local leaders spoke to an excited crowd this past Monday. Both Governor Malloy and Mayor Bronin gave impassioned speeches marking this historic occasion with both enthusiasm and excitement for Dillon Stadium's and Hartford Athletic's future. 100s looked on as the newly installed FIFA certified turf that will be home to Hartford Athletic come spring was unveiled. On this cold November day, coffee was thankfully provided by Hooker brewery whose exciting prospects of a partnership with the club is one we look forward to following. Additionally, several supporters came to the event beating drums and singing an original chant "We are here for Hartford" to commemorate the occasion – a great sign for the growing popularity within the city for the club.
