Was. A. Manager. With. Minimal. Game. Coaching. Experience. Worked. Out.
Had no idea about the history of Dillon Stadium until reading the articles about HA. New York Cosmo's (NASL) w/ Pele played a couple matches there & Giorgio Chinaglia played a couple matches there for the Hartford Bicentennials (NASL). Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Yes, Kiss, etc. Good stuff!
Don't forget the visit by Jim "King" Corcoran and the Pottstown Firebirds.
How Hartford Athletic plans to build CT's next sports brand
"Unlike the Hartford Yard Goats, the Double-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, and the Hartford Wolf Pack, the AHL affiliate of the New York Rangers, HSG is operating as an independent franchise.
Mandell's group has discussed partnerships to swap players with Major League Soccer's New England Revolution, New York City FC or New York Red Bulls, but will not entertain a direct relationship. Mandell said he and his partners want to retain full ownership rights, which will allow them to collect a larger cut of revenues from sponsorships, concessions and ticket and merchandise sales.
"We want to own Hartford's team and we don't want to give up any of that control," Mandell said.
"We can have relationships with anyone we want," he said, adding the Revolution have provided crucial advice on navigating the pro soccer landscape in New England."
All this remains to be seen but these guys certainly are saying a lot of the right things.
Detroit City FC is a great franchise who does amazing with fans and supporter groups.
Hartford Appoints Powell as Chief Operating Officer
How long before this team is allowed to compete for the US Cup?
That’s a smart hire.
Surely no sarcasm was intended.
They're prepping the site for demolition.
drove by yesterday - good to see some serious progress
Paul Buckle - Wikipedia
Hearing some whispers about Paul Buckle for the couch. Had this in the back of my head when Premier League came back this weekend. Married to Rebecca Lowe who flies to CT every week from CA to broadcast down in Stamford. Another solid hire if true.
That hire makes total sense. NBC Sports is in CT. Hartford Athletic will get a little free publicity I bet too.
With so much Dillon infrastructure, that ought to take all of several days to a couple weeks tops.
I'd hope they'd listen to whatever advice the Revs have and then do the exact opposite. That's like listening to the captain of the Titanic for navigation advice.
