“To play the game is good, to win is better, but to love the game is best of all.”

Harvard-Yale Storied History
The rivalry entered its most celebrated arena in 1875 when football teams from Harvard and Yale met in front of 2,000 fans in New Haven, Conn. This marked the beginning of a gridiron rivalry that is now known simply as “The Game.” However, Harvard and Yale also have an historic hockey rivalry that started in 1900 when they played their first game in New York City.
Since that first game, a 5-4 Bulldog victory, Harvard and Yale have gone on to become two of the most distinguished programs in college hockey. From ECAC Championships and NCAA Frozen Four appearances to producing Stanley Cup champions and Olympic gold medalists, the Crimson and Bulldogs have established proud legacies on the ice, befitting their world renowned educational institutions.
