CIAC moves football finals to CCSU

Published March 08. 2013 4:00AM

The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference Football Committee voted Wednesday to hold 2013 state championship football games at Central Connecticut State University, moving from Rentschler Field.

The four championship games at Arute Field will take place Friday and Saturday Dec. 13-14.

"CCSU is the perfect size to accommodate our spectators and creates an outstanding championship atmosphere," CIAC assistant executive director Paul Hoey said. "Their facility is one of the best in the state, and having a turf field available will allow for predictability with scheduling and field conditions."

Following recent expansion, Arute Field's seating capacity expanded to 5,500.
