The Connecticut Coyotes were a franchise in the Arena Football League.

History[edit | edit source]

They competed in the 1995 and 1996 AFL seasons. They played their home games at the Hartford Civic Center.

After compiling a record of 3-23 in two seasons, the team was disbanded following the 1996 season.

The city of Hartford would receive another team in 1999 when the New York CityHawks became the New England Sea Wolves. However, this team's tenure in the city would also be short-lived, as the team moved to Toronto following the 2000 season.
