The "New" Stadium
Wien opened on September 22, 1984 with a loss to Harvard. The first home win at the stadium came on October 8, 1988, over Princeton. The 10,500-seat southeast (home side) stands were built first; the 6,500-seat northwest stands opened two years later. The stadium is named for Lawrence Wien, class of 1925, a former trustee, philanthropist, lawyer and entrepreneur. After a $5 million donation by Robert Kraft, class of 1963, the field was named in his honor on October 13, 2007.
Robert K. Kraft Field at Lawrence A. Wien Stadium at Baker Athletics Complex is a stadium located at the northern tip of the island of Manhattan in New York in the Inwood neighborhood. It is primarily used for American football, lacrosse, and track and field events, and is the home field of the Columbia University Lions. It opened in 1984 and holds 17,100 people. It is part of Columbia's Baker Athletics Complex (formerly known as Baker Field, but not to be confused with the former Baker Bowl located in Philadelphia).
