Watch: Hartford’s XL Arena Seeks RFPs for Purchase

Hartford’s XL Center in Hartford, CT is seeking request for proposals for their aging stadium. The Stadium is currently home to UConn women’s and men’s basketball, UConn hockey and the AHL minor league Wolf Pack. Proposals are due by June 29, and the decision is expected after evaluation and negotiations by a review panel in the fall.

Oak Street Real Estate Capital, a Chicago private equity firm has already stepped forward with an unsolicited bid. Michael W. Freimuth, the executive director, said the state is not pledging to devote funds for improvements as part of the RFP.

The decision on what to do with the arena has been going back and forth since 2014. “The state could be a player. I would think honestly whatever proposals come in, it would require some state participation.”
