The design for Regina's new football stadium will be unveiled Thursday morning, according to a notice from the city.

Strictly speaking, the notice from the city simply references "an historical announcement".

However, the same phrase has been used - in the past - when officials have provided advance notice of upcoming stadium news.

As well, the city said that officials from the city, the province and the Saskatchewan Roughriders will be on hand.

Here is what is planned:

  • News media will be briefed early Thursday morning. The information provided can not be released until 10 a.m.
  • At 10 a.m., a formal announcement will be made.
  • At 11:30 a public Open House, at the EventPlex will start.

People interested in attending the Open House will need to use either Lewvan Drive or Princess Street to enter the Evraz Place grounds because Elphinstone Street is closed due to construction ... of the new stadium.

Current season-tickets sold-out

Meanwhile, the Saskatchewan Roughriders announced Tuesday that all available season tickets for the 2014 football season have been sold.

The club allocated 26,700 to season-ticket holders. The capacity of Mosaic Stadium, for the coming season, is 33,427.

Tickets for individual games go on sale May 31, at 10 a.m.

The club also maintains a waiting list for people who want season tickets for 2015.
