New Stadium

The Government of Saskatchewan, City of Regina and the Saskatchewan Roughriders signed a Memorandum of Understanding for a new stadium that will be constructed on Evraz Place lands in Regina.  It is anticipated the new stadium will be ready for use in early 2017.

The $278 million required for the stadium will be funded through an $80 million grant provided by the Government of Saskatchewan, $73 million through City of Regina funding, and the Saskatchewan Roughriders leading a process to accumulate $25 million.  In addition, the province will provide $100 million in financing to the City of Regina.  The loan will be fully repayable over a 30 year term, with interest.  The $100 million loan would be primarily repaid through a $12 facility fee on games and major events held in the new stadium, ensuring a significant portion of the stadium funding comes from users of the facility, primarily the amazing Rider Nation fans.

The stadium is one project in the government’s program to invest in the growth of Saskatchewan.

While the stadium is a key component in the revitalization of downtown Regina, other projects include the Plains Surgical Centre, the Global Transportation Hub, University of Regina residences, Arcola, Douglas Park and White City Schools, Saskatchewan Children’s Hospital, Battleford Hospital, Moose Jaw Hospital and upgrades of our highway system.
