The Saskatchewan Roughriders today announced details of a tribute to the 101st Grey Cup Champions, and all three previous champions, at their home opener and Grey Cup rematch against the Hamilton Ti-Cats on June 29th. The game will kick off with former Rider and current Indianapolis Colt Jerrell Freeman leading fans with a live presentation of “Bring EM Out”, which will be followed up with a Fly-Past by Canadian Forces Base Moose Jaw.
At half time, Rider Nation will pay tribute to the 101st Grey Cup Championship team as well as the Rider Championship teams from 1966, 1989 and 2007. The Tribute will include video highlights from all four championships, a look at all four Championship Rings, followed by a flag raising for each of the four Championship Teams. Rider greats from each of these teams will be on hand for the half time festivities.
Other new additions to Rider Game day will be new video displays that will run the length of the field on the east side of the stadium, as well as video displays that will now be positioned on top of the suite levels on both the north and south end zones which will deliver an even more exciting visual experience for Rider fans at Mosaic Stadium.
