Nestled in a spectacular setting next to the Charles River and with the Boston skyline on the horizon, Harvard Stadium ranks among the nation’s finest college football facilities.
Built in 1903, it is also the nation’s oldest stadium. Harvard Stadium is a horseshoe containing architectural elements of a Greek stadium and Roman circus and is considered an engineering marvel, as it was the world’s first massive reinforced concrete structure and the first large permanent arena for American college athletics. With a seating capacity of 30,323, Harvard Stadium is praised for its outstanding sightlines for fans.
Now for changing the game of modern football, Harvard Stadium has also hosted numerous other events during it’s storied history and is currently home to the Boston Cannons of the MLL.
