The date of the game won’t be known until late Saturday night, but the Saskatchewan Roughriders have a message for their fans as they prepare to host its first playoff game at Mosaic Stadium and the first playoff game the team has had at home since 2013.
“We need Rider Nation to be here.” director of marketing Miriam Johnson said on Tuesday. “We don’t want a blue stadium, we don’t want a red stadium. We need a green stadium.”
Johnson says about 1500 tickets were sold for the game which will go either November 11 or November 18 after the Riders win over B.C. last Saturday night to clinch a home playoff game.
The Riders will meet either Calgary or Winnipeg in the Western Final at 3:30 on November 18 if the B.C Lions beat the Stampeders on Saturday night in Vancouver. A Calgary win in that game would mean the green-and-white would entertain the Bombers on November 11. That game would also begin at 3:30
