2022 Riders schedule announced

The CFL revealed its full schedule for the 2022 season, and the Riders will see plenty of their division rivals.

The Riders will play the Bombers at least four times in 2022. The Labour Day/Banjo Bowl series returns to its regular place in the schedule–Weeks 13 and 14. And a third regular season game will be Week 17 in Winnipeg. They will also meet in the preseason.

As well, the Riders will wrap up the regular season with a home-and-home series against the Stampeders.

It all leads up to the Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium on Sunday, November 20.

The Riders will open the season on Saturday, June 11 at home to the Eastern champion Hamilton Tiger-Cats. That is one of four Saturday home games on the schedule. The Riders will play four home games on Friday and the traditional Labour Day game on Sunday, Sept. 4,

Their byes fall in Weeks 9, 16 and 19, leaving them two weeks of games before the playoffs.

Riders action will start early next year, as they play the lone Week 1 preseason game against Winnipeg. That will be in Regina on Monday, May 23.

As always, we’ll have every game live with extension pre/post-game coverage on 620 CKRM and across the Cooperators Roughrider Radio Network.
