With scheduled summertime field improvements at Harvard Stadium already forcing one tenant to an alternative location, the Boston Breakers aren’t ready to seek a new home just yet.

The Breakers, who’ve called Harvard Stadium home for much of their existence, are currently looking to stay at the historic venue for the upcoming NWSL campaign.

“We are working on scheduling and options with Harvard,” Breakers general manager Lee Billiard said. “We will have an announcement once details are finalized in the coming weeks.”

Prior to playing their home games at the 30,323 capacity Harvard Stadium, the Breakers hosted opponents at Dilboy Stadium in Somerville, Mass., which seats 2,800, from 2012-2013.

The Breakers called Harvard Stadium home from 2009-11 as a member of the now-defunct Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS).

During their time in WPS, the Breakers incorporated the stadium’s iconic design as part of their annual “Pillars of Excellence” award, which honored the best players during the club’s history.
