1999: Where to put the stadium?
Connecticut or Foxborough for stadium?
Patriots owner Robert Kraft almost decided to build the team's stadium in Hartford, Conn. instead of staying in Foxborough. Connecticut offered to build, with taxpayer money, a 68,000-seat stadium in Hartford, but the deal was dogged by environmental and logistical problems.
Massachusetts said it would provide $70 million for infrastructure improvements if Kraft agreed to build a new stadium in Foxborough.
