Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium is a multi-purpose stadium located on the campus of Harvard University in the Allston neighborhood of Boston. (Although the core of the Harvard campus is in Cambridge, the athletic complex lies within Boston.) It opened in September 2010 and replaced Ohiri Field as the primary home of the Harvard Crimson men's and women's soccer teams. It hosted a 2010 playoff match for the Boston Breakers of the Women's Professional Soccer league due to conflicts with the team's primary home, Harvard Stadium.[1] In June 2013, the New England Revolution played host to the New York Red Bulls in a US Open Cup Round-of-16 game, marking the first time in Revolution history the team played a game within the Boston city limits.[2] Starting with the 2015 season, it is the home stadium and training venue of the Boston Breakers.[3]
