Multi-Sport Field is a 2,500-seat multi-purpose stadium in Washington, D.C. on the campus of Georgetown University. The field was originally used for intramurals and was adopted for soccer in 1994 as Harbin Field. The name, a placeholder pending construction, was changed to reflect the football team's use of the field starting in 2003.

Unfinished

The field has been awaiting further construction since 2005, when work was halted on completing permanent bleachers and other facilities. As a result, it remains the smallest stadium in Division I football.

Several of the school athletics teams play home games there, including the Hoyas football team, the men's and women's lacrosse teams, and the Georgetown University Rugby Football Club. The professional Washington Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse used the field for most of their games during the 2007 season. Lights were installed on the field in early 2009. The surface is artificial, made of FieldTurf.[1]
