A full-capacity crowd will welcome the green and white to their first Labour Day Classic game in two years on Sept. 5.

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced the 56th edition of the annual home game showdown against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers has sold out.

It’s the club’s second sellout of the 2021 CFL season so far.

“After an absolutely electric home opener last weekend, we can’t wait to have another sold out crowd for the Labour Day Classic,” said Chief Brand Officer Anthony Partipilo.

“Rider Nation always proves to be the difference maker for us, and we know they will make a big impact in our quest to beat the Bombers.”
