Here’s some gameday reminders for the Riders home-opener

The Countdown to Kickoff for the Saskatchewan Roughriders home-opener is nearing its end.

On Saturday, the Roughriders will play host to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

But before the game starts, the Riders remind their fans of a few things to make game day a little easier.

The Riders are remaining fans to remember their phone is their ticket, which can be accessed by downloading the Rider App and that they have moved to a clear bag policy, which was first introduced last season.

In terms of getting to the game, Rider Transit is available from various locations across the city (Southland Mall, University of Regina, Warehouse district, the Delta Hotel, Victoria Ave and Scarth Street) and at the Turvey Centre, starting two hours and 15 minutes before kickoff time.

The Coors Light Party in the Park opens at 2:00 p.m. and will feature inflatables, face painting, a balloon artist, performances from the 620 CKRM Cheer Team and the CoorsLight Stage with DJ Tolley T.

The kickoff is at 5:00 p.m., with doors opening at 3:30 p.m. There will be a performance from the 620 CKRM Pep Band with every fan in attendance will receive a magnetic fridge schedule at the gate to keep track of all our games this season.

After the game, fans are welcome to come to the field to have fun with their family and friends once players and coaches have cleared the field. Fans can get field access from Pil Country or Section 124.
