Located in the heart of downtown Hartford, the XL Center serves as a venue for a multitude of sports and entertainment events. Originally opened in 1975 as the Hartford Civic Center, the building was in need of extensive renovations to serve its tenants, the Hartford Wolf Pack and the UConn Huskies Basketball programs.
Plans include new retail shops, increased points of sale locations and cosmetic improvements to the main concourse. A new restaurant and bar will be added to provide additional food and beverage options and encourage patrons to remain in the city after their event.
New exclusive UConn team facilities including locker rooms will be added to support their successful program as well as a new UConn Club. The existing seating bowl will be amended to include suites and club seating. New mechanical and electrical systems will be installed to maximize efficiency and comply with current code requirements.
