TICKETS GOING FAST

The Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club announced today that over 20,000 season tickets have been renewed for the upcoming season. This is the earliest the Riders have surpassed that mark in the history of the franchise.

New season tickets will go on sale to the general public on February 14th at 10:00 am. "We expect the demand for new season tickets to be very high," stated Riders VP of Marketing and Business Development Gregg Sauter. "The only way to guarantee your Grey Cup 101 ticket is by being a Roughrider season ticket holder."

The Club also announced that they will be increasing their season ticket capacity to 30,000 for the 2013 season. With the recent renovation to Mosaic Stadium, capacity has been raised to 33,427 and will again be increased this year with temporary Grey Cup seating.

Individual game day tickets will go on sale to the general public on June 1st.

Big year for the Riders. I would suspect that they will max out on the 30,000 season tickets that are avialble to be sold for that Grey Cup ticket at the end of the rainbow. Leaving only 3,000 plus tickets to be sold on game day with the current seating that is in place. This could increase the timeline for which the extra Grey Cup seating is to be erected as it may very well be needed for the regular season.

I know the new stadium will be built with out the roof but will have the option to put one in at a later time. A thought accured to me that they could put a temporary cover over the stadium each year for the winter monthes and remove for the spring and summer. Thats how the Big O started with a crude tarp covering the hole in the roof. With technolgy now and the Grey Cup finding enclosed venues more than thos that are not enclosed could put the new Mosaic in the regular Grey Cup rotation knowing that it can be enclosed for fan confort.
Just a thought as we move further into the second decade of FL in the 21st century
