More than 80% of Grey Cup 2022 tickets have been sold at Mosaic Stadium.
Saturday’s CFL game against the Edmonton Elks will be unique. A goal is to sell the most Grey Cup tickets in the shortest amount of time. In 2010, Edmonton sold the remaining 63,317 seats in less than six days.
On Monday, more than 80% of Grey Cup 2022 tickets were sold at Mosaic Stadium. The remaining 6,000 tickets will be available for purchase on Tuesday.
Craig Reynolds, the Roughriders’ CEO and president, told the Regina Leader-Post on Monday that the team has experienced “a terrific rise.”
The pre-sale activity demonstrates supporters’ anticipation for the inaugural Grey Cup game at Mosaic Stadium.
The 109th Grey Cup will be attended by almost 20,000 Roughriders season ticket holders.
On November 24, 2013, the Regina Roughriders defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 45-23 at Taylor Field.
The Green and White began the 2022 regular season with a 30-13 victory over the Tiger-Cats, fueling fan excitement for another Grey Cup.
Reynolds, who co-chairs this year’s Grey Cup Festival with Barry Clarke, said the finale on Saturday “does nothing except heighten the enthusiasm I’ve already noticed.”
“Grey Cup tickets are practically sold out in certain sections of the stadium. The weekend anticipation around this game may result in swift ticket sales.
The 2022 Grey Cup will draw fewer spectators than the previous three Saskatchewan contests.
Tickets weren’t fully sold out for Regina’s inaugural Grey Cup game. In 1995, 52,064 people watched the Baltimore Stallions defeat the Calgary Stampeders 37-20.
The Stampeders returned to town on October 14 and were defeated 25-20 by the Roughriders in front of 55,438 fans. Taylor Field’s capacity is increased to 4,000 thanks to temporary bleachers.
On November 16, 2003, Edmonton beat the Montreal Alouettes 34-22 in front of 50,909 fans.
Temporary seats expanded capacity to 44,740 in 2013.
It’s 34,000 this time. Mosaic Stadium can accommodate 33,350 people. To accommodate a bigger audience, standing-room-only tickets will be sold.
The paid attendance of 28,216 on Saturday made room for more individuals. According to Reynolds, 24,000 people attended
There were more no-shows than expected throughout the weekend. Our help came primarily from rural regions.
The Roughriders’ 2021 home opener drew 33,350 people, their first game in two years due to COVID-19, compared to 30,121 for their 2019 Canada Day home opener.
In July, the Roughriders will host four games, beginning with Edmonton and Montreal. They’ll face the Alouettes on July 2, the Ottawa Redblacks on July 8, the Toronto Argonauts on July 23, and the British Columbia Lions on July 30.
Sports tickets will be subject to a 6% PST beginning in October. Late-season tickets purchased before October are exempt from the fee. Tickets for the Grey Cup 2022 remain the same.
Season ticket holders may pick up their Grey Cup tickets until Monday at 11:59 p.m. MT at the Roughriders’ headquarters.
Tuesday at 10 a.m., the public can buy remaining tickets. You can purchase tickets by phoning the Mosaic Stadium box office, using TicketMaster, or other official ticket providers.
