The Saskatchewan Roughriders are a Canadian Football League team based in Regina, Saskatchewan, founded in 1910. The Roughriders have won the league's Grey Cup championship three times, 1966, 1989, and 2007, the least of any current CFL team. They are the current Grey Cup champions. They play their home games at Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field. The team draws fans from across the province and country who are affectionately known as the "Rider Nation". The fans are known for their loyalty and "Rider Pride", and it is not odd to find a group of Rider fans following the team on their road games across the country.

Franchise history

The team was founded as the Regina Rugby Club in 1910. They changed their name to the Regina Roughriders in 1924 and officially to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1948, the same year the team changed their team colours from red and black to green and white. The formation of what became the CFL brought them into the same league as the similarly named, but differently spelled, Ottawa Rough Riders. The team name comes from the North-West Mounted Police (based in Regina), who were called Roughriders because they rode wild broncos while on duty.[citation needed] The Ottawa team was named for the log rollers of the region's rivers. The presence of two teams whose names were pronounced the same in one league came about only when two leagues merged, and the teams were reluctant to change (and allowed to keep) their established nicknames.

To date the franchise has won three Grey Cup Championships; a 29-to-14 victory over the now-defunct Ottawa Rough Riders in 1966, a thrilling 43-to-40 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 1989, and also a 23-to-19 victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in 2007. Four times, the Roughriders and (Ottawa) Rough Riders met in Grey Cup finals, prompting joking predictions from sportswriters that 'the riders' would win it all.

After an 18 year championship drought the Saskatchewan RoughRiders won the Grey Cup on November 25th, 2007 and the entire province, known as the "Rider Nation", celebrated the victory with cheers of victory spanning the province. With horns honking and people yelling, the streets came alive, most notably on Albert Street in Regina and 8th Street in Saskatoon; the mantra in the province continued..."Go Riders".


Defensive back James Johnson set a Grey Cup record with three interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, as the Saskatchewan Roughriders won their first championship in 18 years on Sunday.


In 2007 the Riders jumped out to a 7-2 start, their best since 1976. A notable victory was a last minute victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the annual Labour Day Classic. In this game for the first time the Riders wore retro uniforms and helmets harkening back to their glory days. This delighted Rider fans who bought them up and sold them out within days. The 2007 season has brought along with it the Roughriders' first home playoff game since 1988, which was played at Mosaic Stadium on November 11th, against the Calgary Stampeders. The Riders once again wore their popular retro uniforms and took a close victory against Calgary 26-24. The win against Calgary also gave Saskatchewan their first home playoff win since 1976. This was followed up on November 18th by a 26-17 win at BC Place over the BC Lions in the West Division final, to give the Roughriders a berth in their first Grey Cup final since 1997. On November 25, 2007 the Riders played the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the 95th Grey Cup. This marks the first time that two Labour Day Classic opponents played each other in a Grey Cup game. Saskatchewan Wins 23 - 19 over Winnipeg in a game where James Johnson set a CFL record of three interceptions in a single Grey Cup game.
