Rider Fans Required to Show Proof of COVID-19 Vaccinations for Home Games

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have announced fans will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or provide a negative test before they can attend home games at Mosaic Stadium. This new requirement has a target start date of September 17th.

In a recent statement, they shared, “through the course of the pandemic the Club has relied on the expertise of provincial health officials to guide the team as it re-opened Mosaic Stadium to fans at the beginning of August. Since that time, cases in Saskatchewan have risen significantly and the contagious nature of the Delta variant has become a concern both to the Club and to public health experts regularly advising us.”

Those exempt are fans under the age of 12, who are currently unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. For partially vaccinated adults or those who may be unable to receive the vaccine for medical or religious reasons, a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of a game starting will be accepted.

“We continue to strongly encourage all of our fans to get fully vaccinated for the safety of themselves and others and to wear masks to our games as an extra layer of protection,” said President and CEO Craig Reynolds.

Over the next several weeks, the Club will work on the logistics of how to accept proof of vaccination while working closely with the SHA, REAL and provincial health officials. As the Club is early in this process, further details are currently not available.
