The 109th Grey Cup game scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 20 at 6:00 p.m. EST at Mosaic Stadium in Regina has officially sold out.
“The Grey Cup is more than a game – it’s about unity, strength and community,” said CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie in a statement. “It’s a shared legacy between our great game, our world-class players and our incredible fans, and we couldn’t be more excited to gather in a packed-to-the-brim Mosaic Stadium, to write the 109th chapter of this story together.”
More than 33,000 fans will be in attendance for the game, which will be the first ever played at Mosaic Stadium. Regina last hosted the Grey Cup in 2013 before the venue was built to replace Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field.
“We have been absolutely floored by the support that we have received for the 109th Grey Cup in Saskatchewan,” said Grey Cup Festival co-chair and Saskatchewan Roughriders’ president and CEO Craig Reynolds. “We are looking forward to hosting fans from across the country at Mosaic Stadium for the championship game, and thousands more for a once-in-a-life time celebration of Canadian football at our Grey Cup Festival.”
The Grey Cup Festival runs from Nov. 15-20 and will feature a number of events, parties, and celebrations. The performer for this year’s halftime show has yet to be announced.
Four CFL teams have already clinched postseason berths, including the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, B.C. Lions, Calgary Stampeders, and Toronto Argonauts. The league’s other five teams all remain in contention for a playoff spot, including the fourth-place Saskatchewan Roughriders (6-8).
