Field Project

Riordan is in the final stages of the largest capital improvement campaign in recent history to install a state-of-the-art turf field. Mayer Family Field at The Carl and Celia Berta Gellert Athletic Complex will break ground in Summer 2019. We invite you to make a gift or pledge today and impact the future of generations of young men.

Our Biggest Classroom

In its current state, the field does not meet the needs of our students. Deferred maintenance has created an uneven playing surface, and the field is not playable during wet conditions. The last varsity home football game was held on the field in Fall of 2014.

A new turf field will provide a year-round facility for practices, games, marching band rehearsals, PE classes, and leisure use. For a young man, the lessons learned on an athletic field will impact him for a lifetime. The field is truly Riordan’s biggest classroom.

Thanks to a generous gift from the Mayer Family, all gifts up to $500,000 will be matched. We have also received a $750,000 grant from the Carl Gellert & Celia Berta Gellert Foundation. Read More
