Roughriders July 23 Family Day Game Moves To Sunday, July 24

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced that the home game originally scheduled for Saturday, July 23 has been moved to Sunday, July 24 at 5 p.m.

The move comes after several members of the Saskatchewan Roughriders tested positive for COVID-19 this past week.

“To have to move our game is a worst-case scenario for us and something we never want to have to do,” said Roughriders President and CEO Craig Reynolds. “We know that our fans often plan to attend Rider games weeks and months in advance and there can be a lot of travel and logistics involved in that decision. For that, we are truly sorry, but we hope by keeping the game on the same weekend and moving it to Sunday our fans will still be able to make it out to enjoy Family Day at Mosaic Stadium.”

The Club plans to have nearly all of the same exciting happenings at the Stadium on Sunday including Coors Light Party in the Park beginning at 2 p.m., appearances from princesses and superheroes, a junior anthem singer, and a Roughrider slime giveaway for the first 5,000 kids who enter the Stadium.

Those with tickets for the July 23 game will automatically have their tickets moved to July 24. No action is required on the part of the ticket holder.

“We have had an unfortunate reminder that COVID-19 is still a reality in our lives, but we will put our best foot forward when we play Sunday night,” said Reynolds. “Family Day is one of my favourite games every year, and I can’t wait to have our fans there to cheer us on.”
