UFL to Hold Press Conference at Rentschler Field

By Dan Canavan and Dan Fitzgerald

Hartford has been targeted as the home for a United Football League (UFL) franchise from the early moments of the upstart league.   The UFL’s “Premiere Season,” which included a game between the New York Sentinels and Florida Tuskers at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, only fueled speculation that the UFL would call Hartford home one day.  Might that day be this Tuesday?

Late last week, the UFL announced that it will be holding a press conference on Tuesday, February 16th at 11:00 a.m. at Rentschler Field.  Both UFL Commissioner Michael Hugyhue and Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell will be in attendance.  It’s been widely rumored that the UFL will be making an announcement regarding the future of professional football in Connecticut.

You can watch the press conference live from Rentschler Field on www.ufl-football.com, starting at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

Stay tuned to Connecticut Sports Law for continuing coverage of this developing story.  For some perspective on the UFL’s potential move to Hartford, see the following Connecticut Sports Law articles, which we published after the UFL’s first game from Rentschler Field on November 12, 2009:
