New Regina Stadium
The construction of a new sports stadium in Regina, Saskatchewan was officially announced by Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall and Regina mayor Pat Fiacco during a special pre-game ceremony at a Saskatchewan Roughriders game (at their current home, Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field) on July 14, 2012. The new stadium will be constructed at Evraz Place, Regina's exhibition grounds (which is also the site of the Brandt Centre, home arena of the Regina Pats WHL team), and will have a projected capacity of 33,000. The new stadium will initially be an open-air stadium like Mosaic, but will be built to support the construction of a roof in the future. The City of Regina unveiled a proposed design in September 2012; a sunken bowl with louvres for wind control and a partial roof around its rim designed to shield spectators.
