The Richardson Stadium revitalization project is moving along well. Demolition of the old stadium is underway, with construction that began this fall and will continue through the winter and spring. The new stadium is scheduled for completion in August 2016, in time for the 2016 football season. Work will continue through the winter as weather permits, including work to renovate the west building. The majority of work on the project will take place between 7 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday. Over the next several weeks excavation and drilling for supports and foundations for the stadium will occur.
Richardson Stadium is a historically significant sports venue for Queen’s, Kingston, and Canada. The third Richardson Stadium will be an important competitive sports venue and recreational facility for Queen’s and the broader community. Please join us to commemorate this important milestone for our community at a groundbreaking ceremony on December 5.
