Rider Capital
Campaign



The Saskatchewan Roughriders have recently embarked on a $40 million Capital Campaign to support the Club’s financial commitment to the construction of Saskatchewan’s new stadium.

The new stadium will be home to the Roughriders as well as hundreds of other amateur sporting events, major festivals, concerts and attractions for many years to come. Construction will begin this spring with the stadium’s first CFL game set for June of 2017.
Under the terms of the agreement with the City of Regina and the Province of Saskatchewan, the Club’s contribution will be a total of $40 million dollars. This includes $25 million towards the overall stadium construction plus an estimated $15 million towards the design, construction and furnishing of areas specific to the Riders such as locker rooms, team training and health facilities, meeting and equipment rooms as well as football and business offices.

The $40 million Capital Campaign will be branded as the Roughrider “Builder Campaign” and has been designed to allow for participation from the business community and Rider Nation.
JIM HOPSON, FORMER PRESIDENT & CEO, says:

“This iconic new facility will be enjoyed by the people of Saskatchewan for years to come. It will not only be a focal point in Saskatchewan, it will generate national acclaim as one of the premier facilities of its kind in Canada,” said Jim Hopson, President and CEO of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. “This facility is being built for the community and clearly Rider Nation will be one of the key beneficiaries. With that in mind, we are designing a multi-tiered Builder Campaign and partnership program that will allow business partners and individuals to participate and be recognized and rewarded for their contributions to the construction of this great facility.”

The business community will be provided with multiple opportunities to become part of our Builder team. The foundation of the Builder Campaign will feature 12 Founding Partners – “The Starting 12.” – who will receive lifelong presence within the new facility and the ability to secure exclusive multi-year sponsorship assets, naming rights and other activation opportunities with our fans. The business community at large will also be presented with partnership opportunities to contribute and be recognized for their support of this building project.

Individual Rider fans will also have opportunities to participate and be recognized as being part of the Builder Campaign. More details on the Rider Builder Campaign will be made available in the coming months.

Meet the Architect of the New Mosaic Stadium, Mark Williams. Get to know a little more about what went into the new home of the Roughriders


Stadium Design



We recently had an opportunity to chat with Mark Williams, Principle at HKS Architects,
the designer of the New Mosaic Stadium.

Below are excerpts from our interview with Mark Williams.

Can you tell us more about stadium access and what it is unique with the new Mosaic Stadium?
We have designed the stadium to provide 360 degree access and the entry points are at grade which means we have lowered the majority of the seating area into the ground. The benefit of that is that 68% of fans will be walking into the stadium and then going down to their seats instead of up. This also means that the height of the stadium will be lower.

About
On May 22nd, 2014 the Saskatchewan Roughriders joined the City of Regina and the Province of Saskatchewan in the unveiling of the final design of the new home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The new facility, which will be named Mosaic Stadium will have a standard capacity of 33,000 and will be expandable to 40,000. The stadium will deliver an incredible game day experience with wider individual seats, a sunken bowl to ease spectator access, expansive concourses, concession and hospitality offerings including a general admission lounge and premium options which include 38 suites for corporate partners.

The stadium design includes a translucent spectator roof and open south end zone connecting the stadium to the community and creating a feeling of spaciousness, while providing an improved level of comfort for all users. This iconic new stadium will stand out as one of the premier facilities of its kind in Canada and will become a center piece for the province. The new Mosaic Stadium will be located a few blocks west of the old stadium.

Construction of the stadium will begin in June 2014 with substantial completion and expected to be achieved in August of 2016. The first Rider game in the new stadium will be played in June 2017. The stadium will be built by PCL Construction Management Inc., which includes HKS Sports & Entertainment, B+H Architects and TD Securities.

FAQ
I attend games with a friend but did not receive information regarding my seats. He did. Can you explain?

The information is sent only to the registered account holder and to the primary e-mail address that is in the account. If all tickets are in his name, that would explain why you did not receive a notification.

I have seats in two different areas of the current stadium but the email I received with my new seat locations shows only one grouping of seats.

We are sending out new seat location information based on what zone your seats are in in the current stadium. You will receive a separate email over the next few months advising of your seats in the other zone(s). Please refer to the zone map that was included in your email or check on newmosaicstadium.com.

I find the new seats I have been allocated are no longer within my budget. Can I move to less expensive seats?

You have a couple of options. You can make an appointment with the transition team and move to unsold seats in the north end zone or you can attempt to transition your seats to any lower priced area during the seat improvement period in early 2017.

I know I could book an appointment but I only have a couple of simple questions. Can I email the questions to you?

Yes, please email any questions to us at nmspreview@saskriders.com. All emails will be replied to as promptly as possible and within 3 business days at most. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to book a phone appointment or an in-person appointment.

If I book an appointment will I be offered better seats?

We allocated the most comparable seats to your current location for all season ticket holders. When you come in for an appointment, we will be happy to discuss the location of your seats, venue access and amenities, plus any other information that is available to us at that time. Due to our high percentage of season ticket holders, any alternate seats that we have to offer would be those in the north end zone that have not been sold.
The annual seat improvement period in early 2017 is when you will have the opportunity to upgrade your seats.

I had aisle seats before but I am in the middle of a row now? Why?

The new venue has shorter rows and wider aisles with hand rails. The aisles are in different locations than the current venue and at different yardages. In the survey that was sent out last year, we learned that yardage was considered a stronger factor than maintaining an aisle when assigning seats.

How do I find out who is sitting around me?

For privacy reasons we are not able to provide you with that specific information. You will have to contact your Rider family on your own to learn what seats they were assigned. If you advised us who your Rider family is, we have met your request when possible. In the process of seat assignment, we attempted to keep ‘sections’ of people seated together so you will likely see many of the same faces seated around you.

Will I be able to visit the new Mosaic Stadium to view the seats before I pay for them?

It will not be possible for you to view your seats as the stadium remains under construction. When you receive your seat location you will be able to click on the virtual seating guide and view the sightlines from the area your seats are located.

Why wasn’t I able to select my own seats?

Over the past couple of seasons, we spent time with the CFL and NFL teams who have moved to new venues to study their process to see what did and didn’t work.  We also took the results from our season ticket holder survey last year where yardage and Rider family were the top two concerns, by an overwhelming majority.  After reviewing several different models, the survey and our best practices, we found that the process we have implemented would be fair and equitable for all.

Why did I get moved further out from my current yardage?

Due to a very different configuration of the new venue we were not able to keep all season ticket holders at the exact same yardage. With individual seats that are 2 inches wider than the space allocated on the current benches, more and wider aisles, it means that you may have been pushed out. However, with the stadium design all seats in the new venue have outstanding sightlines, offer great views of the field of play and provide a fantastic game experience.

Can you clarify the difference between what I may be offered at appointments and during the seat improvement period?

During appointments with the transition team in 2016 we will be able to answer any questions you may have about the transition process, venue access, and the amenities at the new stadium. Due to our high percentage of season ticket holders, any alternate seats that we have to offer would be those that have not already been assigned in the north end zone.
Your best opportunity to relocate your seats will be during the seat improvement period in early 2017. During this period, which is based on seniority and if you are a shareholder, you will have access to seats from non-renewed and/or released season tickets.

I am using the Virtual Venue tool and can’t see any of the views from the Premium seating areas. Can you tell me where I can find this??

The virtual venue tool has been created only for the seats in the standard seating areas.

Why don’t I see any reference to student prices?

We are no longer offering student prices as there are many seats available at a student friendly price. We will continue to offer affordable family pricing.

Why is there such a large increase in youth and senior prices?

We have kept our overall pricing very reasonable and are pleased to be able to maintain a discount for our youth and seniors in most of the venue. Please know that the majority of large sport organizations in North America no longer offer any reductions in cost; it was important to us to continue offering discounts to our youth and senior fans.

The ‘youth’ in my family turns 19 in 2017. Will he have to pay adult price for the entire season?

As long as the youth has not turned 19 prior to the start of the 2017 season, the youth discount will be honoured for the entire 2017 season. Youth tickets will only be sold along with an adult seat.

Will payment plans still be offered for season ticket holders?

Yes, payment plans will continue to be offered to season ticket holders. Full details will be included when you receive your initial renewal notification in late 2016

Why do I have to pay $50 per seat in 2016?

We ask that you pay $50 per seat to confirm your seat location(s). This payment will be applied to the cost of your 2017 season tickets and will be indicated on your renewal notification in late 2016.

When is the deadline for the early bird price?

The early bird price will be offered throughout the transition process.

Explain the seat improvement period.

In early 2017 we will have our regular seat improvement period which is based on seniority and whether or not you are a shareholder. At that time, you will have access to any seats that have been released by season ticket holders. Details of the seat improvement process and the specific dates will be emailed in late 2016.

I know that many season ticket holders have higher seniority than I do. Is it worth it to try and improve my seats during the annual seat improvement period?

Yes it absolutely is! Some season ticket holders may not have renewed all of their seats, others with more seniority may have moved to new seats and released their current ones. It’s a giant Tetris game! It is always worth trying!

I have seats in multiple locations at the current Mosaic Stadium. Will I have the chance to move them all together at the new Stadium?

Your best opportunity to try to move all of your seats together is during the annual seat improvement period in early 2017. Season ticket holders will be able to call or visit the ticket office based on their seniority and whether or not they are shareholders.

Will I be protected from the elements where my seats are located?

The roof is designed to provide wind resistance on the field of play and will offer some shade and comfort for our fans. The higher up in the venue you are the more likely you will experience some protection from the elements. However, it is an outdoor facility and you should be prepared for our ever-changing prairie weather!

Is parking available?

More information about parking and transportation will be sent out later in 2016.

Where are the ramps and elevators?

There are ramps and stairs located in the east and west sides of the venue for easy access to the upper levels of the stadium. Elevators are also available for those who might have difficulty accessing the upper level seats.
The lower bowl will be accessed by stairs from the main concourse.
The upper sections in the north end zone will be accessed by stairs from the main concourse only.

How many stairs are there to access my seats?

Generally, there are two stairs per row plus any stairs required to access your section, such as in the 200 level.

Where can I get more information about accessible seats? What is the cost?

Accessible seating will be located in a number of different locations throughout the venue and at different price points. If you currently have accessible seats a member of the transition team will be contacting you directly within the next few months to discuss your options.

Can I have a companion seat?

One companion seat will be available for purchase immediately next to the accessible location.

Where does the rest of my family sit?

The row of seats located directly in front of the accessible seats will be available to purchase for the balance of the people in your party.

Do I need to purchase a ticket for my child?

Children who have not reached their 3rd birthday do not require a ticket; they must be seated on the lap of their parent or adult guardian. Children ages 3 to 18 do require a ticket – be sure to request a youth ticket when you make your purchase.

I am a season ticket holder and currently on the Riders season ticket wait list for additional seats. When will I have the opportunity to purchase?

Once all existing season ticket holders are successfully relocated and seat improvements have been completed, we will contact season ticket holders on the wait list, based on their priority and the number of season seats available. Any new purchases will not be transferrable.

How can I become a season ticket holder?

If you are not currently on the waitlist go to www.riderville.com/tickets and add your name! New purchasers will be contacted after current season ticket holders are taken care of.

How do I know which end of a section is the low numbered seat / high numbered seat?

The numbering protocol is different at the new stadium than the current venue. All you have to remember is that if you are standing on the field of play looking up at a section, the low numbered seat (likely seat 1) is on the left and the highest numbered seat is on the right.

Can you explain the open area at the south end of the stadium?

The south end will provide an all new way of experiencing a game! This area will be a terraced standing area with rails at the front of each level. Seats in this area will be sold on a single game basis only. More details will be released in 2017. Should we require additional seating for playoffs or when we host the Grey Cup, temporary stands may be installed in this area to increase venue capacity.

What is the address of the new Mosaic Stadium?

The address for the new venue is 1734 Elphinstone Street, close to the corner of Elphinstone Street and Saskatchewan Drive.

Saskatchewan Roughrider Corporate Partnership

The new Mosaic Stadium will provide Saskatchewan Roughrider corporate partners with unparalleled opportunities to link their brand to the new home of the Roughriders, and the centrepiece of Saskatchewan!

The stadium is being designed to maximize our partners’ ability to engage with our fans and strengthen ties to the province and Rider Nation. Mosaic Stadium will provide new physical assets that will offer opportunities for engagement, activation and brand presence. The assets include but are not limited to entrance gates, concourses, suites, lounges and visual-branding presence on the giant in-bowl video screen or one of the hundreds of monitors throughout the stadium. This iconic new facility will provide our partners with unprecedented ability to connect with customers, both locally and nationally.

Founding Partners - The Starting 12

The Roughriders have recently announced a $40 million Builder Campaign to support the Riders’ commitment to the construction costs of the new Mosaic Stadium. The foundation of the Builder Campaign will feature 12 Founding Partners – “The Starting 12.” This select group of corporate partners will receive lifelong recognition within the new facility and the ability to secure exclusive multi-year sponsorship and partnership assets, naming rights and other activation opportunities with our fans.
Founding Partners will also have access to premium hospitality areas, including suites and lounges that will provide an exclusive environment for building relationships with clients, vendors and preferred customers.

Founding Partners’ financial support for the stadium construction will include an upfront contribution to the Builder Campaign and an ongoing multi-year investment tied to branding, activation and rights to the Rider brand beyond the stadium and game days. Our recently announced naming rights partner, the Mosaic Company, has also become the first of our “Starting 12” Founding Partners.

The First Four

The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today the first four of 12 Founding Partners: The Mosaic Company, SaskTel, Harvard Broadcasting – A Hill Company, and Capital Automotive Group.

Join The Team

In addition to the Founding Partner program, there will be multiple opportunities for the business community at large to contribute and be recognized for their support of this new facility.
This stadium is a unique meeting place in the province. To that end, the Club is developing opportunities for your business to participate in the stadium build and receive special incentives, access, and keepsakes in exchange for your financial contribution to the project.
