The revitalization of Richardson Stadium is not just the building of a new stadium; it’s the building of a strong varsity sports program, and the building of a strong, leading university overall. Queen’s is committed to engaging with the Queen’s and Kingston communities as the revitalization process moves forward. We look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions on the stadium project.
With excitement building for the official opening of Richardson Stadium on Sept. 17th, featuring Queen’s first home football and soccer games of the season, construction is now in the final stage. As crews work to meet the deadline, some work has continued into the evening hours.
This morning we learned that the field lights at the stadium were on until the early morning hours. We apologize for this and have spoken with the contractor and ensured that on Thursday, Aug. 25 and Friday, Aug. 26 the field lights will not be on past 10 p.m. In addition, the lights will be adjusted to a lower setting. We understand the inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience during this final stage of construction. I would like to assure you that we are doing as much as possible to minimize the impact on the neighborhood.
I would also like to inform you that testing of the sound system will occur between Monday, Sept. 12th and Friday, Sept. 16th, sporadically between the hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
We will continue to provide updates on the construction on the Richardson Stadium Revitalization page (www.queensu.ca/connect/richardsonstadium). However, if you have concerns or questions about construction at Richardson Stadium at any time, please contact Queen’s University Relations at 613-533-3126 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued patience.
