Riders didn’t bid on 2019 Grey Cup

R

The Riders have a brand new stadium but the franchise and city will not host the Grey Cup next year, according to team radio play-by-play man Rod Pedersen.

Saskatchewan enjoyed a successful first season in 2018 at new Mosaic Stadium, which has a capacity of 33,000 but can be expanded for Grey Cup.  Outside of the stadium, Evraz Place has worked well as the location for team parties under one roof and there’s room for indoor practices should that be needed.

The thinking is that the Riders would prefer to have a couple of seasons under their belt in their new digs before taking on a Grey Cup.

The city last hosted in 2013, winning the championship game on home soil. But they won’t get that chance in 2019.
