Grey Cup Legacy Project
About the Grey Cup Legacy Project
In 2013 the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club Inc. hosted one of the single biggest events in the history of the Province, the 101st Grey Cup. To host an event of this magnitude, Mosaic Stadium needed a major upgrade to its facilities. In response to this, Mosaic Stadium underwent a $15 million project including an expansion to its seating capacity in both the north and south end zones. Funding came from the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club with the support of the Province of Saskatchewan through a $6.2 million loan. The Grey Cup Legacy Project expanded the capacity of Mosaic Stadium to over 33,000 as well as expanding the in-game experience at Mosaic Stadium.
The structure used for the expansion is on a semi-permanent basis. With this in place, it allows the structures in both the north and south end zone a chance to be repurposed to other sports and arts facilities in Saskatchewan once a new facility is in place providing a legacy component to the 101st Grey Cup. The first two points of this vision have been accomplished; it is now time to fulfill the final portion with the Grey Cup Legacy Project.
