Hartford City Set for Indoor Action

Professional indoor soccer will return to the region this winter as the Major Arena Soccer League announced on Saturday that it has added Hartford City FC as an expansion club for the 2015-16 season.

Hartford City, which was originally rumored as a possible NASL expansion candidate earlier this year, will play a 20-game schedule that will kick off on Nov. 1. and run through February. The squad will play its home games at the XL Center in downtown Hartford.

“We’re very excited to be starting the Hartford City FC brand with a team in the MASL this upcoming season,” team president Mitch Anderson said in a league release earlier this week. “This is just the beginning.”

The last time New England had a professional indoor entry was back in 2009, when the Massachusetts Twisters played in the now-defunct National Indoor Soccer League. The squad played at the Big E Coliseum in Springfield from 2003-09.
