Harry Harvey Stadium

Marple Newtown High School’s Harry R. Harvey Stadium is recognized as one of the finest football facilities in Delaware county. The most recent renovation of the field in 2005 included a new artificial playing surface, track, press box, stands, and scoreboard. As part of the school’s 2011-12 renovations, Marple Newtown students now have a new weight room to train in and an updated gymnasium.

In addition to Harry Harvey Stadium, the Tigers also utilize the school’s weight room, training room, and football locker room.
