Colby opened the brand new Seaverns Field at Harold Alfond Stadium for the 2009 season. Construction started on the $6-million project in April 2008. The Mules compete on a synthetic turf field (FieldTurf) and have lights for night practices. New landscaping features four- to five-foot earth berms behind both end zones and plantings, particularly at the northwest end, that will give the field a stadium feel. Colby was one of two teams in the New England Small College Athletic Conference with a turf field at the time the field was built.
