CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard Athletics is proud to announce that UBS is the Presenting Sponsor of 138e game of The Game, which is scheduled for Saturday, November 19, at historic Harvard Stadium. The historic rivalry is among the most admired in all of American sport and gives football fans nationwide a glimpse into the historical significance of Ivy League football. The annual rivalry contest is scheduled to kick off at noon ET, with the game airing nationally on ESPNU.
“We are grateful for UBS’s continued support in this historic tradition of the game. As Presenting Sponsor, UBS values Harvard Athletics’ mission – education, principled leadership and competitive excellence,” said Erin McDermottdirector of family athletics John D. Nichols ’53.
Global wealth manager UBS has previously partnered with The Game twice, once in 2018 for the clash at nearby Fenway Park and last season’s game in New Haven, Connecticut. The Crimson emerged victorious in both cases.
“As we celebrate 160 years of UBS business tradition and history, we are delighted to support this historic event,” said Naureen Hassan, President of UBS Americas. “We look forward to being part of one of college football’s greatest traditions and reuniting with fans, customers, colleagues and friends for an exciting game at Harvard Stadium.”
In the draw that took place in New Haven a season ago, Harvard led after three quarters, only for the hosts to take a four-point lead midway through the fourth period. The scoreline remained intact until the final moments as the Crimson went 66 yards in just six plays with Luke Emge discovery Kym Wimberley for a 12-yard touchdown with 22 seconds left, ultimately propelling Harvard to a 34-31 victory.
