Roughriders' 55th Annual Labour Day Classic Sold Out

August 28, 2019 - Canadian Football League (CFL) - Saskatchewan Roughriders News Release

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are proud to announce that the 55th Annual Labour Day Classic presented by Mosaic on Sunday, September 2 is officially a sellout.

The annual classic, which pits the Saskatchewan Roughriders against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on the Sunday of the Labour Day weekend, is a fan favourite for Roughrider and Bomber fans alike.

"Once again we are in awe of the passion and excitement that Rider Nation has for their football team," said Chief Brand Officer Anthony Partipilo. "We can't wait to hear the energy and noise that they bring to this year's Labour Day Classic."

Although the game itself is sold out, the Roughriders invite fans to come to the stadium on Saturday to enjoy our annual Fan Day presented by Capital Auto Mall. Doors will open at 11 a.m. with practice beginning on field at roughly 11:30 a.m. At the conclusion of practice, the entire Roughrider team will proceed to the concourse until 1:30 p.m. for an autograph session. Inflatables, face painting and other fun on-field activities for the whole family will continue on the field in the afternoon. In addition, one lucky fan will win an entry into the Capital Auto Mall Pick6 contest for a chance to win a luxury vehicle at the last regular season home game.

Fans who missed the opportunity to attend the Labour Day Classic are encouraged to get their tickets early for our next home game against the Montreal Alouettes on September 14, which is our Purolator Tackle Hunger game. The Club will also be celebrating 80s Night including appearances from members of the 1989 Grey Cup team.

Game Day at a Glance

September 1st is the Labour Day Classic presented by Mosaic

Before you send your kids back to school join us for a throwback at Mosaic Stadium.

Our favourite game of the year is back and for the 55th annual Labour Day Classic the team will be sporting its retro Saskatchewan Roughrider jerseys as they hope to knock off the division leading Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Back-to-back wins for the Roughriders would place the Green and White in first place.

Get into that Game Day feeling early by heading over to the Coors Light Party in the Park starting at 10 a.m. We'll have an army of face painters ready to help you display your Rider pride. You'll also getting performances from the 620 CKRM Rider Pep Band (11:25 a.m.), the Rider Drum Line (11:45 a.m.), RiderFlo, presented by Engelheim (11:55 a.m.) and the 620 CKRM Rider Cheer Team (12:05 p.m.) before you head into the stadium.

The largest Canadian Flag in sports makes its return to Mosaic Stadium. More than 100 fans and members of the RCMP will unfurl the flag for the singing of O Canada.

Join us on the south concourse at half time for our final Pepsi Summer Concert Series with a performance from Saskatoon's Bombargo.

For fans wanting to get in on the retro action, a new hat and shirt is available at the Rider Store as part of the CFL's Turf Traditions. The Riders alongside teams across the league will be debuting new retro logos over the next week as they gear up for Labour Day.

Once the game is over, head over to Harvard's Studio 620 Lounge on the west side of the Stadium to take in the 620 CKRM post-game show and relive the game with your friends and a cold bevvie. The lounge will be open for three hours after the game ends. Remember to get a safe ride home!

With construction season still in full swing, why not consider taking Rider Transit presented by WorkSafe Saskatchewan to and from Mosaic Stadium? Rider Transit begins offering rides two hours and 15 minutes before kickoff and run for an hour after the game is over. Your Rider game ticket gets you on the bus for free. Find all the pick-up locations here.

Fans planning to ride their bikes to the game on Sunday should note the bike valet has been moved to the south side of the stadium near the SaskTel Maxtron.
