MAYOR SEGARRA WELCOMES 2015 AAC MEN’S BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS AND FANS

(March 12, 2015) Mayor Pedro E. Segarra welcomes fans, visitors and teams to the City of Hartford for the 2015 American Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament, which kicks off today at the XL Center and ends Sunday, March 15, 2015. Eleven restaurants in Downtown Hartford will serve as the home base for all teams competing in the tournament and several others are offering discounts for ticket holders. Community and business volunteers will join Hartford Business Improvement District Ambassadors to greet visitors and answer questions throughout the area.

“We’re proud to welcome all the fans and athletes to Hartford for the tournament. Our downtown restaurants are ready for you and I encourage everyone to explore our Capital City, and, above all, to have fun. Although we’ll be rooting for our UConn Huskies, we wish all the teams the best of luck.”

“A lot of work went into planning by our partners including Global Spectrum, Hartford Parking Authority, XL Center, the BID, CRDA, CT Convention & Sports Bureau, ConnDOT, Hartford Police, MetroHartford Alliance, Hartford Hospitality Task Force, CTTransit, LAZ Parking and our Marketing & Events staff. I especially want to thank our Public Works staff, the AAC and UConn. We look forward to hosting the tournament for many years to come,” said Mayor Segarra.
