University of Guelph Gryphons football head coach Stu Lang has donated $10 million towards the revitalization of Richardson Stadium at Queen’s University.
“It is a privilege for me to make this pledge to my alma mater,” said Lang, in a Queen’s news release.
“My wife and I met at Queen’s. My experience as a student athlete prepared me well for the rest of my life. A big part of my personal development occurred outside the classroom as athletics, more than anything, shaped my life and I am happy to support Queen’s through my contribution to Richardson Stadium.”
With the pledge in place, the university will undertake a special campaign over the next few months to raise the remainder of the $25 million required to modernize the 40-year-old facility, said the release.
Lang is a former Queen’s star football player who went on to play in the Canadian Football League.
