$7.5M redevelopment of Dillon Stadium

Hartford councilors on Monday are to vote on a resolution that would authorize the Capital Region Development Authority to manage Dillon Stadium for at least five years in an effort to bring pro soccer to the Hartford.

The license agreement allows CRDA to manage Dillon Stadium for five years — including the option for three, five-year extensions — while the Hartford Sports Group (HSG) lures a United Soccer League team to Hartford.

As the stadium’s primary tenant, HSG partners have committed to invest between $7.5 million to $10 million to acquire a USL team and bring it to Hartford by 2019.
