Pratt Field

Amherst College’s Pratt Field

AMHERST, Mass. - For 121 years, Amherst College’s Pratt Field has enjoyed an exalted status as the third-oldest NCAA football playing site in the nation and a beacon of small college athletics tradition.

But over the years it was apparent an overhaul was needed to update the facility and keep up with the program’s growing demand for practice space. An opportunity presented itself when a small group of private donors stepped forward last fall with hopes of giving the historic landmark the facelift it needed. It took a construction and support staff of nearly 400 people over 140,000 hours and 250,000 bricks to complete, but the result is the crown jewel of the College’s athletic facilities, a state-of-the-art, carefully crafted complex that will serve Amherst’s needs for decades to come, while still harkening back to a bygone era.

“The ultimate aim of the renovation project was to retain the character and appeal of the 121-year-old Pratt Field, while at the same time replacing its outdated components,” said Director of Athletics Suzanne Coffey. “We anticipate and expect that people will continue to feel that this is the Pratt Field that they know and love.”
