Mosaic Stadium to Receive $14 Million Upgrade

With the Grey Cup set to be held in Regina in 2013, it was announced today that the Saskatchewan Roughriders, with the assistance of a low-interest loan from the Saskatchewan government, will be plowing $14 million into Mosaic Stadium.

The money will be used to add 7,000 temporary seats in the north and south end zones, along with a number of luxury corporate boxes. The new seats will have their own washroom and concession facilities, and will boost Mosaic Stadium’s capacity to 33,000. Money will also be spent on a new video scoreboard.

In 2013, the new blocks of seats will serve as a base for additional temporary seats that will increase Mosaic Stadium’s capacity to 50,000 for the Grey Cup game.

Here’s a link to a Global TV report which features a nifty three-minute plus video discussing the project.

  1. The familiar/subliminal narrator voice on the vid clip, said there will be nearly 50k capacity for Grey Cup.

    A number crunch later, with the last 9 GC’s ,03-11, the avg. attendance is 54,K and a bit.
    4 inside 5 outside.

    There was a paved area parallel to the railway in 2011?
    This “powerpoint” must be part of the $1million feasibility study circa 2009.

  2. I’ll bet that if stick with Taylor Field, none of us will lose a minute of sleep over it. It’s ill that this has become the cause celebre from everyone from “socially-progressive” 40-somethings who are, for some misdiurected reason, hooked on chasing the elusive unicorn of “civic pride”, and legacy-cha$ing friends of big business. Who cares? I want a waterpark, FIRST! This foot ball stadium scheme is all bullocks! Eff your pollyanna unicorns and eff your stupid legacy.
