The Northeastern Huskies football program were the intercollegiate American football team for Northeastern University located in Boston, Massachusetts. The team competed in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) and were members of the Colonial Athletic Association. The school's first football team was fielded in 1932. Northeastern participated in football from 1932 to 2009, compiling an all-time record of 289–366–17. Citing sparse attendance, numerous losing seasons and the expense to renovate Parsons Field – its football stadium in neighboring Brookline – to an acceptable standard, the university Board of Trustees voted on November 20, 2009, to end the football program. According to president Joseph Aoun, "Leadership requires that we make these choices. This decision allows us to focus on our existing athletic programs."
