With the recent announcement of a $10-million pledge toward the revitalization of Richardson Stadium by alumnus Stu Lang, BSc’74 (Chemical Engineering), the dream of a modern stadium is now on its way to being realized.
For Queen’s grads, George Richardson Memorial Stadium evokes the vitality of their Queen’s experience and reminds them of the legendary school spirit that links the entire Queen's community.
In particular, the success of our athletes reminds them of our continuing commitment to excellence in athletics and the importance of physical activity, health and wellness as an integral part of their personal development and success. More than just a venue for Gaels football – though perhaps best known and beloved for Saturday afternoons in the fall – Richardson Stadium has been a focal point at Queen’s and the backdrop for historic moments for almost a century.
The original facility was erected in 1921 on what is now called Tindall Field. Its successor, which opened on West Campus in 1972, was intended as a temporary structure. George Richardson Memorial Stadium has served the Queen’s and Kingston communities well. However, “Richardson” has reached the end of its useful life - the stadium has aged well, but now has significant infrastructure deficiencies and no longer meets the needs of today’s athletes, coaches and teams. Nor does it contain the necessities to support the experience of fans and spectators.
The time has come to revitalize the stadium and transform it into a modern facility – one that meets the needs of both a top-notch football program and of the more than 2,500 students and thousands of community members who participate annually in outdoor recreational/casual sport programs.
More than just bricks and mortar, a revitalized Richardson Stadium will host students, alumni and members of the surrounding community, and provide signature experiences that speak to the importance of sport, recreation, fitness and physical activity as essential components of Queen’s life.
The multi-purpose facility, which will continue to be called Richardson Stadium, will also enrich Queen's and Kingston by:
providing student-athletes, coaches and support staff with quality on-field practice time and amenities that
The original George Richardson Memorial Stadium construction involved student volunteers who rolled up their sleeves to help.
A gift of James Armstrong Richardson, Queen's Chancellor from 1929 to 1939, it was named for his brother George Taylor Richardson, a prominent Queen's athlete who was killed in France during the First World War. As an athlete, George was known for his sense of fair play, and as a military officer, as “a man who would never give an order he would not have himself executed willingly.” With this remarkable gift, George Taylor Richardson’s strength of character, decency, and sense of honour were attached to Queen’s in perpetuity.
As with the original facility, the revitalization of Richardson Stadium, will also be funded through philanthropy.
