The Saskatchewan Roughriders are getting ready to say goodbye to the old Mosaic Stadium.
The team will play its final home game at Tayrlor Field on Saturday against the B.C. Lions.
A fan festival will be set up prior to the main event. At halftime, the crowd will be treated to performances by Jess Moskaluke, Jason Plumb and the Jack Semple Band.
The game will be followed by a 25-minute closing ceremony featuring video, fireworks and special guests.
“It’s going to be absolutely electric and that’s without a joke,” said Steve Mazurak, vice president of the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
“We’ve spent as much time and energy as you can be allowed to put on a fantastic show for the last 30-minutes of this stadium.”
While the team is looking forward to moving to the new Mosaic Stadium in 2017, Mazurak said the focus Saturday will be on paying homage to the past.
“It’s going to be a fun time to sit down and give this wonderful stadium due respect, due honour, that the end is here and we’re going to be moving onwards and upwards.”
The gates open at 3:30 p.m. The Riders suggest fans get there early in order to enjoy the full experience.
Kickoff is at 5 p.m.
