Facility Information:

  • Two outdoor, natural grass soccer fields
  • 120 X 75 yards

Ohiri Field is named for Chris Ohiri '64, a native of Owerri, Nigeria, who was a soccer and track standout for the Crimson. A magna cum laude graduate, he died of cancer while attending classes at Harvard Business School. Harvard dedicated its field in honor of Ohiri on October 15, 1983, in a ceremony preceding a match with Dartmouth.

Ohiri, who led the Ivy League in scoring all three of his varsity years, is the Crimson's all-time  points (94) leader and is tied for the lead in goals (47). He also shares the school record for goals in a game (5, which he accomplished twice) and owns the mark for consecutive games with a goal (13). A member of the 1960 Nigerian Olympic soccer team, Ohiri was selected a First Team All-American in his senior season of 1963.

Ohiri Field consists of a 120 yards x 75 yards natural grass pitch for matches and an additional one of the same dimensions for practice.
