A special morning in Regina on Friday.
Premier Brad Wall, Mayor Michael Fougere and others were on hand to officially open the new Mosaic Stadium.
Construction on the state of the art facility began back in June of 2014.
“With a standard capacity of 33,000 – expandable to 40,000 spectators for major events – the stadium provides a modern fan experience with a spectator roof and open south end zone connecting the stadium to the community. Its unique features include a sunken lower bowl, individual seating, and a 360 degree main concourse. Other amenities include an increase and variety in food choices from local vendors and 37 washrooms, including gender neutral and family friendly facilities,” the city said in a news release.
“Mosaic Stadium features several lounges which can be used year-round and is also home to the Roughrider business and football operations. Saskatchewan Sport occupies 10,000 square feet of office space for several provincial sport-governing bodies.”
The Riders will play their first regular season game in the stadium tomorrow night against Winnipeg.
