City reveals new stadium construction details

REGINA – It’s been one year since the city broke ground on the new stadium, and today they revealed more details about Regina’s newest crown jewel.

A new feature will be a General Admission (GA) Lounge, located on the main concourse level of the west side of the stadium. The GA Lounge will feature food and beverage service plus multiple video screens, and will serve as a gateway from Confederation Park and the plaza space to the new Mosaic Stadium.

“A lot of thought was given to this area – including a clever tribute to our current Mosaic Stadium,” said Mayor Michael Fougere.

Elements from bleachers at the current Mosaic Stadium will be used as decorative ceiling elements, column cladding and the façade of the bar.

“This lounge is a unique feature of our stadium. It will be used year-round for a number of events. The lounge can be accessed by everyone with a ticket to an event in the new stadium,” added Fougere.

“This is a tremendous source of pride for our community and we are very pleased with the progress the PCL construction team has made over the last year,” said Fougere.

“There is a lot of activity in each area of the site and it has been incredible to witness how the stadium has taken shape. In another year’s time, we will be close to having a complete stadium.”

Over the summer, construction crews will begin to develop the west side of the stadium and it will mirror the east side. Over the next couple of weeks, people will see a dramatic change on the north side as construction will start on the Sask Sport and Roughriders administration area.

Later this year construction in the southeast corner will also begin for the spectator roof.

The stadium is expected to be substantially complete by August 2016 with the first Rider game scheduled for June of 2017.
