The “Farewell Season” at Mosaic Stadium begins Saturday with the Riders first home game of 2016 as they meet the B.C. Lions in a pre-season game that starts at 7 P.M.
Many things will happen inside and outside the stadium with one of the changes being when people drive up to the stadium and see new banners featuring quarterbacks Ron Lancaster and Darian Durant.
Riders V.P. of marketing Gregg Sauter says the image of Durant goes along with perhaps the biggest memory in the history of the stadium.
Sauter is also telling fans if they have stashed any beer tokens over the years, it is time to start cashing them in as tokens won’t be used at the new stadium.
Sauter adds metal detector wands will be in place at entrances for random checks.
