The Kenney Center and Jensen Plaza at the historic Yale Bowl were dedicated on November 21, 2009, the day of The Game between Yale and Harvard. The three-story Kenney Center creates a new formal entry for the Yale Bowl, a feature that has been missing since it was constructed in 1914. It also instituted a celebration venue for Yale sports in the heart of the university’s athletic campus. New team and training rooms provide the players a better place to meet at halftime, and an upper-floor alumni reception room and green roof deck open to views front and back of the gridiron and tailgating fields. Leading to the Kenney Center is Jensen Plaza, where the names of all of the football “Y” recipients who have competed for the Bulldogs since 1872 are carved into the Mount Airy Granite walkway.
