33,000 individual seats with cup holders, a 4,400 square foot locker room, a six level lounge and party-style standing area known as “Pil Country” and a little less wind whistling through the stands.
That is only some of what the new Mosaic Stadium has to offer.
Saskatchewan Roughriders President & CEO Craig Reynolds stopped in Saskatoon to give members of the Greater Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce a more in-depth look at the new Mosaic Stadium during the lunch hour Tuesday.
Reynolds says the design team and Riders Executives took trips to many different ball parks and stadiums across North America and picked different parts to put into this structure.
Another feature for players is the hydro-therapy area that has a hot tub, a cold tub, and an underwater treadmill. for athletes recovering from injury.
As much as many people have questioned why the stadium only sits 33,000, Reynolds says other places like Edmonton’s Commonwealth Stadium, at 60,081 seats, made the mistake of going too big.
The Roughriders open training camp in Saskatoon on May 28th. The official grand opening for new Mosaic is set for July 1st.
