Mosaic Stadium

When the City of Regina’s Mosaic Stadium opened, Saskatchewan Roughriders fans had something else to be proud of: an exciting new home for their team. The 360-degree concourse stadium with expandable seat capacity for 40,000 also houses Sask Sport (a non-profit organization that represents the province’s amateur sport community), retail outlets, and community spaces.

The first landmark project of the City of Regina’s $1 billion Regina Revitalization Initiative, Mosaic Stadium is already one of the most recognizable buildings in Regina, the Province of Saskatchewan, and the Canadian Football League. The multi-purpose facility has hosted two concerts and is the home of the University of Regina Rams, Regina Thunder and Regina Riot football teams, and the venue for other sport and entertainment programming.

A nod to the past

More than a century separates the old Mosaic Stadium, built in 1910, from the new. But what the new stadium lacks in history, it makes up for in size. At nearly 522,000 square feet, the new building more than doubles the square footage of its predecessor. Everything old can be made new again and as a nod to the past, wooden bench seating from the old stadium was repurposed in the décor of the new general admission lounge.

Opening day touchdown

On October 1, 2016, the stadium was tested at 50 percent capacity when the University of Regina Rams set a Canada West attendance record with 16,500 fans, defeating their provincial rival University of Saskatchewan Huskies. On July 1, 2017, the Saskatchewan Roughriders played their first home game in the new Mosaic Stadium as part of the Canada 150 festivities.

More than two-thirds of the facility’s seating is contained within a sunken bowl, providing easier access to stands and unobstructed views of the field. Whether watching the game from one end zone or the other (or anywhere in between), fans enjoy a large and uninterrupted concourse; individual, wider seats with cup holders; and a partial spectator roof—because you can’t put a lid on that kind of excitement.
