Initially constructed in the 1930s, Dillon Stadium is an existing field and stadium used for sporting events, concerts, and extensive community festivals. Now home to the Hartford Athletic professional soccer club member of the United Soccer League, the stadium has been brought back to a focal point of the community to be enjoyed for years.
Newfield Construction was selected by the Capital Region Development Authority in conjunction with Hartford Sports Group (HSG) to provide construction management services to help to revitalize Dillon Stadium by bringing a United Soccer League franchise to Hartford. Newfield assisted the owner and primary tenant in constructing a 5,500-seat venue with a new light system and a new FIFA 2-star field turf playing surface. Other details include updated locker rooms, restrooms, concessions, and VIP seating areas to enhance the fan experience, a new broadcast booth, an AV/sound system, and a scoreboard that will allow games to be broadcast on several media types. Additionally, local school teams and community events will use the stadium and field.
