1600 TICKETS LEFT FOR FAREWELL GAME
It's the last-ever Rider game in the stadium which has hosted more professional football games than any other in Canadian history.
"It's going to be truly electric folks, so everybody in the Rider Nation is going to want to have a ticket for this game," Mazurak said. "Run to the ticket office because it's going to be truly electric."
Mazurak wouldn't provide many details on what Saturday's festivities include, other than that three distinguished alumni will be featured at the game. Last week the club announced Saskatchewan music acts Jess Moskaluke, Jason Plumb and Jack Semple will perform at a 20-minute halftime ceremony.
Rumours suggest the postgame ceremony will have a similar feel to the 2013 Grey Cup game in Regina.
"It's going to be absolutely electric, and that's without a joke," Mazurak continued. "We've spent as much time and energy as you can be allowed to put on a fantastic show in the last 30 minutes for this stadium."
Mazurak, a former star Rider receiver, said the franchise is truly ready to move out of Taylor Field and into the glitzy new Mosaic Stadium across the street but for one more game, the old stadium will be appropriately honoured.
"I'm the first to say 'Let's put a bulldozer to this thing and get on with the new' but it does need praise, it does need to be honoured, and I believe we've done a pretty good job of doing that," Mazurak said.
Tickets for the game can be purchased at www.riderville.com, 1-888-4-RIDERS and the Mosaic Stadium ticket office.
