Soccer Fans Allowed: MLS Match In East Hartford To Include Spectators

Connecticut recently acquired a temporary Major League Soccer tenant to play in East Hartford. And now, local soccer fans will finally get to see them play.

Pratt & Whitney Stadium will welcome 5,000 spectators to a Toronto FC match on November 1.

Tickets go on sale October 19. Attendees are required to wear masks and stay away from spectators not in their group.

The Reds have called East Hartford home during a portion of the pandemic because American MLS teams haven’t been allowed to cross the Canadian border for competition.

If you read any of Frankie Graziano’s previous biographies, they’d be all about his passion for sports. But times change – and he’s a family man now.
