RIDERS WELCOME TWO NEW FOUNDING PARTNERS
This select group of corporate partners receive lifelong recognition within the new facility and the ability to secure exclusive multi-year sponsorship and partnership assets, naming rights and other activation opportunities with our fans.
Founding Partners will also have access to premium hospitality areas, including suites and lounges that will provide an exclusive environment for building relationships with clients, vendors and preferred customers.
Crescent Point Energy is a leading North American light and medium oil producer with assets across Western Canada and Utah. Established in 2001, Crescent Point has quickly grown to become the number one driller in Canada. The Company holds significant assets in the Williston Basin in southeast Saskatchewan and throughout southwest Saskatchewan. Since inception, Crescent Point has invested over $20 million in community donations and sponsorships, with the majority of that funding directly benefitting organizations in Saskatchewan. Crescent Point’s founding partnership of new Mosaic Stadium demonstrates their commitment to the Saskatchewan Roughriders community and symbolizes the Company’s support of the entire province, something Crescent Point cares deeply about. Crescent Point is traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange and New York Stock Exchange, both under the symbol CPG.
“Crescent Point’s significant commitment to Saskatchewan makes our Founding Partnership with the new Mosaic Stadium a great match,” said Scott Saxberg, President and CEO of Crescent Point. “In 2017 alone, our capital spending in the province forecasts to be over $1.0 billion. We have always made a point to give back to the communities where we live, work and operate. There isn’t a more appropriate way to show the people of Saskatchewan our support than by contributing to the next legacy of the province and to the Saskatchewan Roughriders Football Club.”
“At Dream, we are continuously seeking opportunities that allow us to enrich the communities where we live and work,” said Daniel Marinovic, Senior Vice President of Land & Housing, Dream. “Partnering with the Saskatchewan Roughriders supports our vision of bringing people together, while celebrating the province’s diverse and vibrant culture. Saskatchewan has played such a fundamental role in Dream’s continued growth and success, so it is an honour for us to contribute to the opening of Mosaic Stadium and play a role in this significant milestone for Saskatchewan.”
The addition of Crescent Point Energy and Dream Unlimited Corp. brings the Founding Partners total to ten after the Riders previously introduced The Mosaic Company, SaskTel, Harvard Broadcasting, Capital Automotive Group, AGT Foods, Molson Coors, Viterra and Young’s Equipment.
