CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Last fall, visitors to Harvard Stadium were informed of a limited number of localized work zones demarcating exploratory construction activity. The Faculty of Arts and Sciences and Department of Athletics initiated engineering studies to better understand existing concrete conditions throughout the building. Exploratory activity continued through the fall with minimal impact to game-day operations or the fan experience.
This summer repair and preservation work to the Harvard Stadium structure and façade was performed. Visitors to Harvard Stadium this fall will notice repaired concrete, structural improvements, new concourse walkways, repainted section and seat numbers, and a new main flag pole. We expect the new colonnade bleachers will be installed prior to the 2019 season.
Harvard football will host five home games in 2018 versus San Diego (Sept. 15), Rhode Island (Sept. 28), Holy Cross (Oct. 12), Princeton (Oct. 20) and Columbia (Nov. 3) at Harvard Stadium. The 135th playing of the Harvard-Yale game, "The Game", will be hosted at Fenway Park Nov. 17.
