RIDER$ ANNOUNCE $2.2M PROFIT
2014-15 AGM ANNOUNCEMENTS
During her report, Tina Holtby, the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Director of Finance, revealed the Football Club reported a profit of $2.2 million. The Club recorded operating revenues of $42.4 million.
Gate receipts generated $15 million in revenue for the 2014 season down slightly from the prior year mainly due to Mosaic Stadium returning to its regular capacity after the removal of extra seats that had been installed for the 2013 Grey Cup.
The Club once again continued to set the pace in merchandise sales in the CFL during the year. Gross merchandise sales were $9.4 million spurred on by strong online sales and higher than anticipated demand for the new signature jerseys. This is the 3rd time in the past 5 years the Club has exceeded the $9 million mark in merchandise sales.
