    "The Game" between Harvard and Yale will be at Fenway Park this year and tickets go on sale on Friday, April 27.

    This Ivy League college football rivalry will be played in front of the Green Monster on Nov. 17.

    “It is thrilling to host one of the most celebrated rivalries in college football at Fenway Park this November,” Mark Lev, managing director of Fenway Sports Management, said in a statement.

    The battle between Harvard's Crimson and Yale's Bulldogs is the football season finale for both Harvard and Yale.

    The two teams first met on November 13, 1875 and Harvard won, 4-0.

    This game pre-dated the modern football scoring system and resembled more of rugby than what we know of American football today, according to Fenway Sports Management.

    Yale leads the series 67-59-8. This 2018 game also marks the 50th anniversary of the 1968 game, which famously ended with a 29-29 tie.

    Fenway Park is the home of the Boston Red Sox.

    “This promises to be a special experience for each of the schools, alumni and the student-athletes on the field. We’re excited that Fenway Park is going to be the setting for this historic rivalry,” Lev said in a statement.

    More information about the game will be announced at a later date. For further information, you can visit their website here
