After years of speculation and months of work on preparing the site, fans will finally get to see exactly what the new home of the Riders will look like.

The City of Regina is joining the province, Saskatchewan Roughriders and Evraz Place to make what they're calling a "historical announcement" at 10 a.m.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are the CFL's crown jewel pulling in millions-of-dollars from fans all across the country and in 2017, the envy of the league will have the best stadium in the league. Out with the old and in with the new.
 

CFL rejects players' latest offer

Hopes of avoiding a players strike in the CFL and having the season start on time may be dimming after an open letter from the league's commissioner.

On Wednesday morning, Mark Cohon sent a letter to fans of the league with an update on contract negotiations between the CFL and its players. The letter detailed the latest offer made to the players which Cohon called fair and reasonable .

2014 Rider season tickets sold out

Those wishing to buy tickets to a Saskatchewan Roughrider game at Mosaic Stadium this season will have to wait to buy single-game tickets; the club announced Tuesday that season ticket sales had reached its maximum.

The football club has hit season ticket capacity with 26,700 sold.

Riders Huclack retires after seven CFL seasons

Cory Huclack never did make headlines during his seven year career. But that's just what the long snapper wants.

The seven year CFL vet rarely made any noise because the snaps were always on point.

Huclack is now leaving the game.

The Winnipeg product got his start on his hometown team before being dealt to Montreal that same year. It's there where he won his first Grey Cup Championship in 2009.

The next year he joined the team he helped beat in '09 only to lose to his former teammates in the Grey Cup.

Regina stadium announcement coming Thursday

The new stadium will be one step closer to reality as a historical announcement will be made Thursday morning.

The City of Regina, Province of Saskatchewan, Saskatchewan Roughrider football club and Evraz Place are coming together for the 10 a.m. announcement to be held at the Credit Union EventPlex.

While many expect the design of the stadium to be revealed at the announcement, Regina Mayor Michael Fougere isn't giving many hints.

Roughriders looking to fans to fund stadium contribution

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are looking to their fans to help raise the $40 million the club is contributing to the construction of the new stadium.

The cost of the open-air, roof-ready building is set at $278 million; the Saskatchewan government is putting up an $80 million grant plus a $100 million loan, the City of Regina is contributing $73 million with the Roughriders kicking in $25 million.

Ainsworth ready for the pros

Dylan Ainsworth was hoping to hear his name called in the first round of the draft.

But the disappointment of not going in the top nine was quickly forgotten when the Saskatchewan Roughriders selected him 11th overall.

"We were out back, refreshing the phones to see where I was going and as soon as my name popped up my dad hollered it out and broke the champagne out and everyone was elated."

Riders deal 1st round pick; select Ainsworth 11th overall

The Ottawa Redblacks set the tone by trading the first overall selection in the CFL draft to Calgary.

The first two rounds of the CFL Draft were more like trade deadline day more than draft day. Six trades were made in the first round including the Saskatchewan Roughriders dealing their 8th overall pick to Hamilton. In return, the Riders got the 11th and 17th picks.

The Riders weren't done with the deals, later flipping that 17th overall pick to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for the 20th and 26th selections.

Roughriders' President and CEO will step down in a year

The Saskatchewan Roughriders continue to check people off the list who need contract extensions, although the team will soon be searching for someone new to fill a vital role.

The quarterback is locked in, the coach, the general manager and now the CEO and President Jim Hopson have all signed new deals.

Hopson's new contract will have him stay on into the 2015 season, which Hopson says will be his last.

Corey Chamblin cool with new rules

The CFL has officially gone where no professional football league has gone before.

On Thursday the league's board of governors approved a slew of new rules including allowing pass interference to now be challenged by head coaches.

The move comes after years of frustration from coaches, players and fans alike over the inconsistency in the call and often it's game changing effect. It's a rule that could be an interesting one for Riders head coach Corey Chamblin as he is a former defensive back as well.
