Saturday, May 4 marks the beginning of a new era in Connecticut sports.
The state’s brand new soccer team, Hartford Athletic, is about to play in front of a home crowd for the first time.
The team has already played eight games on the road this season.
The team goes against Charlotte at 7:00 p.m. at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.
You can catch the team all season long on our sister station, MyTV9.
