Keith Harris Stadium at Carleton University is a FieldTurf stadium located in Ottawa, Ontario, on the North-Eastern edge of the Carleton University campus, where Bronson Avenue meets University Road. Keith Harris served as the Director of Carleton Athletics for over 30 years and was inducted into its Hall of Fame in 2000.

The stadium is home to Carleton University Ravens Men's and Women's varsity Soccer. It was also home to the Ottawa Fury soccer club. During the 2008 season, it also became the home field for the Ottawa Sooners football club. In 2010, the Ottawa Invaders called Keith Harris home as they join the Northern Football Conference. In 2013, the Carleton University Ravens football team will once again return to play at Keith Harris Stadium.

The Stadium, supplied and installed by Sport Systems Canada Inc, has a total capacity of 3,044 spectators plus 3 state of the art press boxes complete with viewing platforms.

In 2011, the Carleton Board of Governors approved a plan for the expansion and renovation of the stadium.[1]

On October 11, 2013, the Ottawa Fury FC announced that the club had reached an agreement with Carleton University to stage its 2014 North American Soccer League (NASL) spring season games at Keith Harris Stadium. The agreement with Carleton University allowed the Ottawa Fury FC to play all five home games of the 9-game 2014 NASL spring season at Carleton while construction of the team's permanent home stadium at Lansdowne Park completed in time for the fall season.[2]
