CTSG Stadium Site Awarded $8MM Infrastructure Grant

"Connecticut Sports Group (CTSG) is grateful to Governor Lamont's team at the Department of Economic and Community Development, Senator Herron Gaston, Representative Chris Rosario, and the entire Bridgeport delegation for their unwavering support in securing infrastructure funding required to construct CT United's waterfront stadium. The $8MM awarded by the State's Community Investment Fund complements significant private capital already committed.

Together, we're set to make a lasting impact on the Greater Bridgeport region and the State of Connecticut by creating jobs, spurring billions in economic impact, and attracting millions in additional private investment. Beyond the construction of a new stadium, plans for the development include a 260-room hotel, new state-of-the-art retail offerings, 1,000 new residential units, a community soccer pitch, a public park, and public water front access.

This project is a testament to our shared vision to ignite the spirit of our communities, foster local talent, and showcase Connecticut on the national stage. We look forward to deepening our collaboration with State and local leaders as this development progresses."
- André Swanston, Founding Partner of CTSG
