Riders on the Road and Close to Home with 2024 Event Schedule

April 19, 2024 - Canadian Football League (CFL)
Saskatchewan Roughriders News Release

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are pleased to announce an exciting slate of events for season ticket members and Roughrider fans near and far during the 2024 football season. From away game meetups to season ticket member draft parties and junior cheer camp, we're spreading that Rider pride across the province and the country this year.

Kickstart the fun of the season with a Saskatoon favourite - Green and White Day is back on May 18th! Games, face painting and music are all on the menu for this popular annual event. Fans will have an opportunity to ask questions of President and CEO Craig Reynolds, Vice President of Football Operations and General Manager Jeremy O'Day and Head Coach Corey Mace at State of the Nation prior to an up-close look at the new Roughrider squad just days before the first preseason game. At the end of the on-field activities, fans are invited to line the fences for a team autograph session.

For Regina and area fans, Rider Rally returns for its second year on May 25th with an exciting new twist: a watch party on the SaskTel MaxTron! The Club can't wait to officially welcome you back into our collective home at Mosaic Stadium while we cheer on the Riders versus the Edmonton Elks. Fun, family activities will also take place on the turf throughout the afternoon.

Road trip! We're taking the show on the road for three away games this year, bringing Gainer, the 620 CKRM Rider Cheer Team and Pep Band alongside Roughrider alumni to three lucky communities, courtesy of McDougall Auctioneers. The event even boasts a half-time auction of the Ultimate Rider Fan Package! Details on how your community can apply for Riders on the Road Presented by McDougall Auctioneers to come.

Missing the home team? The Riderville Tour is back for the 2024 season with three road cities on tap for a Green and White pregame takeover. This year they'll be stops in Vancouver, Ottawa and Calgary.

Media interested in covering any of the events should contact Roughrider Communications for more details.
