Whittier Field

Whittier Field

The Bowdoin College football team practices at Pickard Field, part of Bowdoin's 35-acre athletic complex. Bowdoin's home games are played at historic Whittier Field, one of the most storied football fields in the nation. The field, named for Frank Nathaniel Whitter (Class of 1885), Bowdoin's first athletic director, was built in 1902. Hubbard Grandstand was a gift of General Thomas H. Hubbard (Class of 1857) and was finished in 1904. Nestled among the Bowdoin pines, it is one of most gorgeous settings for collegiate football in New England.
