Saskatchewan Roughriders history

The history of the Roughriders franchise dates back to 1910, making them the fourth-oldest gridiron football team still in existence behind the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals and the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Toronto Argonauts.

The Roughriders are also the CFL’s oldest Western Canada team still in existence that’s been continuously based in that part of the country.

The Roughriders were originally known as the Regina Rugby Club, a name that lasted through 1923. The Roughriders moniker arrived in 1924, but at the time, the team was still solely identified with the capital city of Regina. That changed in 1945, when the franchise became provincially owned, and in the process, swapped out its city designation for that of the province of Saskatchewan.

The Roughriders have made 19 Grey Cup appearances overall, the earliest coming back in 1923. The team has won our Grey Cup championships, the most recent in 2013. The franchise’s most successful decade of regular-season play was the 2000s, when it amassed 91-87-2 record. Saskatchewan also recorded one of its four Grey Cup wins in that decade (2007).
