Theme Games (Riders' Version) Announced for 2024 Home Schedule

April 16, 2024 - Canadian Football League (CFL)
Saskatchewan Roughriders News Release


There is no place like home at Mosaic Stadium in 2024, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders are thrilled to announce this year's exciting game themes and experiences for everyone in Rider Nation.

This year's home games are a mix of fan favourites such as Family Day and Legends Night, exciting twists on some of the most popular themes from past years including Throwback Thursday: Eras (Riders' Version) and 13th Fan Appreciation: Trick Plays and Treats as well as two new themes: Green is the Colour and Prairie Proud.

"As summer inches closer we are really feeling the energy and excitement across the province for the upcoming season," said Roughriders President and CEO Craig Reynolds. "We spent the offseason building a football team you will be proud of alongside a can't-miss in-stadium experience for every single home game. We can't wait to welcome Rider Nation back to Mosaic Stadium for the preseason on May 20th and our Home Opener on June 23rd."

Season tickets are still available for purchase for fans who don't want to miss a minute of the action at Mosaic Stadium, but for those fans who are unable to commit to the full season, you can get first access to tickets for your preferred games with the 3+ Flex Plan. This custom plan allows you secure your seat at three or more games this season INCLUDING the Labour Day Classic. Opting for a Flex Plan allows you to choose your games and seat prior to the single game on-sale May 1st and includes savings off the regular ticket price. Visit Riderville.com to start building the ticket package that works best for you.

Starting on May 1st our popular Family Pack, with tickets for two adults and two youth, also returns for $99.00+taxes. It's the easiest and most affordable way to bring a family of four to the game. In our continued commitment to provide affordability for families we are happy to introduce new youth pricing for the 2024 season. Youth (ages 3-14) can attend a Rider game for 50% off the adult price! Youth pricing applies to both season tickets and single game tickets - excluding gold and premium seating - when purchased with an adult ticket.
