2010-11 AGM ANNOUNCEMENTS
During his financial report, Craig Reynolds, the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Chief Financial Officer, revealed the Football Club reported a record-profit of $6.6 million. The club exceeded the $38 million plateau in total gross revenues.
The Club saw record revenue from ticket sales during the year as a result of the sell-out of all regular season games. Gate receipts totaled $11.3 million surpassing the prior year’s record by 9%. The Club’s season ticket base continued to grow with an increase of 8% seen in the year.
The Club’s Centennial celebrations and strong playoff run helped drive sales to a new level. The Club exceeded $10.3 million in merchandise revenue during 2010/11 which was an increase of 45% over the prior year’s record sales of $7.1 million.
