As the CFL gets ready for the 108th Grey Cup in Hamilton, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have their eye on the 109th Grey Cup in Regina.
Saskatchewan was scheduled to host the event in 2020 but that was cancelled when the season was wiped out due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The committee in charge of the festival took the extra time to update the logo for the event.
“We were so happy with the 2020 Grey Cup logo and how it represented the beauty of Saskatchewan and our pride as Rider fans as hosts of the Grey Cup,” chief brand officer Anthony Partipilo said in a statement.
“And while we were heartbroken to not be able to host the Grey Cup in 2020, we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the CFL’s heartland in 2022 with this refreshed logo, and some exciting new plans for the Grey Cup Festival.””
This will be the fourth time the Grey Cup will be held in Saskatchewan’s capital city, with the most recent coming in 2013 when the hometown Roughriders beat the Hamilton Tiger-Cats by a score of 45-23. The other two occasions were 2003 and 1995.
