Newly renovated beginning in 1998, Richardson Stadium is the home to Stephen B. Smith Field and Irwin Belk Track. Seating up to 6,000 fans, Richardson resonates with memories of homecoming and alumni cake races. Richardson Stadium also holds the Hubbard Family Football Locker Rooms and the Doe Weight Room.
Football and Lacrosse both compete on Smith Field. The NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship was hosted by Davidson at Richardson Stadium for three consecutive years (1992-94), launching the College Cup to national attention. In 1994, the tourney drew a then-record crowd of 23,818 people in two days.
Richardson Stadium had its inaugural season in 1923, due to the generous gift of Lunsford Richardson, Jr., Class of 1914 and Henry Smith Richardson, Class of 1906, in memory of their father, Lunsford Richardson, Sr., Class of 1875.
