We are proud of our deep roots in the community and continually humbled by the support we have received over the years. In 2017 the city announced a naming right opportunity for the South Windsor Arena. When Capri was selected, and the South Windsor Arena was renamed the Capri Pizzeria Recreation Complex we were so honoured. A great day in our history!
