  • The Boston Breakers originally intended to play their home games in Foxboro Stadium, used primarily by the NFL’s New England Patriots, when this plan didn’t work out the Breakers ended up playing at Boston University’s Nickerson Field.
  • Though the Breakers played in three distinct cities, they never changed their nickname or their logo.

  • The Boston Breakers share their name with a team in the Womens United Soccer Association.
  • Of their three seasons in the USFL, the Breakers only winning record came while playing in Boston.
