Evraz Place is the ideal site for our new stadium. It will anchor a multi-use sport and entertainment complex that incorporates existing facilities, including the Brandt Centre, the Queensbury Convention Centre, the Credit Union Eventplex, the Cooperators Centre and the Sportplex. The site is centrally located, easy to access and an ideal gathering place from people across the province.
The site of our existing Mosaic Stadium will be redeveloped as a complete neighbourhood with a mix of housing, green spaces and retail and commercial opportunities.
The 33,000-seat open-air facility will be a comfortable home for the Saskatchewan Roughriders and local sports teams, along with their fans. The stadium will feature expandable seating and the option to add a roof at a later date. With enviable amenities and state-of-the-art features, this new stadium will attract world-class sports, concerts and events.
Then Now & Future
For more than 100 years, Taylor Field has been the destination for sports fans across Saskatchewan. Countless interceptions, completions and touchdowns have been thrown here by professional and amateur quarterbacks. Mosaic Stadium’s age has brought with it a long list of problems, and the time for a new stadium has come.
Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field has a rich past in Regina, and as the Taylor Field Neighbourhood its memory will live on for generations.
Working with the Government of Saskatchewan and the Roughriders, the vision for a new stadium has evolved into a plan that makes sense for Regina. This community facility will bring the maximum benefit with a minimum cost to taxpayers. The foundation for this generational project has been laid, and it’s time to get to work.
