Northeastern Dropping Football


Northeastern University Director of Athletics Peter Roby announced that the football program will be discontinued, effective immediately.  The press release announcing the move stated, "The decision is consistent with the university’s strategic approach to prioritize programs and invest in signature strengths."

Northeastern was averaging fewer than 1600 fans per game and the program needed major infrastructure investments in order to maintain competitiveness.
