Located on the West Campus, Richardson Stadium is Canada’s third-largest natural grass stadium and is home to the Queen’s Football and Soccer programs. Built in 1971, the stadium seats over 10,000 and has hosted a number of international sporting events & concerts.
The stadium was named in honour of George Taylor Richardson, a Queen’s graduate renowned for his athleticism and sportsmanship who died in World War I.
In addition to Richardson Stadium, West Campus is home to more turf and grass fields.
Tindall Field offers students a new full-size artificial multi-season playing field along with a three-lane rubberized jogging track.
Located on campus, near the corner of Union and Albert Street, Tindall Field serves the interests of all intramural programs and is Kingston's first outdoor artificial turf.
Nixon Field, formerly known as Kingston Field, has been completely renovated, including the installation of a new MondoTurf
surface. Located in the heart of campus, just south of Queen's most iconic landmark - Grant Hall, Nixon Field is the home of men's and women's rugby and will also support many other recreational and sport activities. This new multi-purpose field was designed to fit into the existing landscape in the heart of campus and is a premier rugby facility in Canada.
In May 2011, the field was renamed to Nixon Field, in recognition of a generous gift from Gordon Nixon, COM'79, LLD '03 and his wife Janet (Raymond) Nixon, COM'80.
