The Harvard Crimson :: News :: Improved Stadium Scores Pro Team
Major League Lacrosse’s Boston Cannons have inked a deal to play their 2007 home games at Harvard Stadium in Allston.
The 104-year-old stadium, which was recently lined with FieldTurf and given permanent lights, has not hosted a team from the pros since the NFL’s Boston Patriots played there in 1970.
If not for the recent upgrades, the drought probably would have continued, Director of Athletic Communications Charles V. Sullivan said. Chandler wouldn’t disclose the specifics of the deal, but the Cannons are essentially renting the stadium from Harvard for the summer, according to Sullivan. For each one of the team’s six home games, the organization is offering a 20 percent discount for all Harvard students and faculty, Chandler said.
