The official unveiling of Mosaic Stadium is now less than a week away.
On Saturday night, the Saskatchewan Roughriders will show off their brand new 278 million dollar home to the nation when the green-and-white open up against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the first official CFL game at the facility.
Riders president and CEO Craig Reynolds can’t wait.
“We’re excited to show the country what we’ve done here and what the province has accomplished ,'” Reynolds told reporters Monday morning. “We think its the best building in Canada, it is world-class and it is iconic so to unveil it on Canada’s 150 birthday is quite exciting.
Reynolds adds the game will be a significant one in the team’s storied history with the opening of the stadium.
He says this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and that it will be an amazing day for Rider Nation and its fans.
Game time Saturday night is 7 PM. 620 CKRM will have it all for you starting with the pre-game show at 4.
