The Yale Bowl is a college football stadium in the northeast United States, located in New Haven, Connecticut, on the border of West Haven, about 1½ miles west of the main campus of Yale University. The home of the Yale Bulldogs of the Ivy League, it opened in 1914 with 70,896 seats; renovations have reduced its current capacity to 61,446.
The Yale Bowl inspired the design and naming of the Rose Bowl, from which is derived the name of college football's post-season games and the NFL's "Super Bowl".
In 1973 and 1974, the stadium hosted the New York Giants of the National Football League while Yankee Stadium was being renovated.
