Rider Nation is our heart and soul, and this piece is to say thank you and to honour those who generously gave to the Club in a time of crisis.

Friday, November 20 - Sunday, November 22
This past weekend, fans voted on the Rider Grey Cup Championship game they wanted to relive and starting on Friday, November 20th, we're making it available to fans on demand for their very own Riderville at Home! While we can't gather together for a traditional Riderville party at this time, we will provide you with a how-to guide to bring Riderville to your own living room. Plus, in place of commercial breaks, the chosen game will be packed full of some of your favourite Rider in-game features from 2019 including Jammin' with the Riders. Sharing your Riderville at Home on social media could net one lucky fan two tickets to the Grey Cup in 2022!
Sunday, November 22
Stay tuned to hear what we have planned on the day that would have been the 108th Grey Cup at Mosaic Stadium.
