(April 14, 2014) Statement from Mayor Segarra on Hartford being chosen as the host city for the American Athletic Conference’s 2015 Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament:
“This is great news for Hartford, especially coming off the heels of the UConn victory parade yesterday where over 200,000 fans came out to show their support for the men and women’s basketball teams.
“Hartford was home of the Women’s Big East Conference for nine years, that same enthusiasm and energy still exist here and they’ve gotten bigger. We look forward to hosting all the fans again and letting them experience all that Hartford has to offer.”
