The Saskatchewan Roughriders made $3.8 million last season, the second highest profit in the franchise's history, the team announced.

The team said the a drop in merchandise sales and the lack of hosting a playoff game affected revenues for the season.

About 36 per cent of the club's revenue last season came from ticket sales. Merchandise sales brought in another 22 per cent.

The club's expenses for the season were just under $28 million.

The Roughriders' best year was the previous one, when merchandise sales and hosting a home playoff game boosted profits to a total, for that season, of $6.5 million.
