The team was founded as the Regina Rugby Club in 1910. They changed their name to the Regina Roughriders in 1923 and officially to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1950. 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 a Northwest Mounted Police force who were called Roughriders based on the fact that they rode wild broncos while on duty.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders' darkest day came in 1956 when four members of the team were killed in a plane crash while returning from the CFL All-Star game in Vancouver. Gordon Sturtridge, Mel Beckett, Ray Symyk and Mario DeMarco were killed when Flight 810 crashed into Slesse Mountain in British Columbia. All four players had their number retired by the team shortly thereafter.
To date, the franchise has won 2 Grey Cup Championships; a 29-14 victory over the now-defunct Ottawa Rough Riders in 1966, and a thrilling 43-40 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 1989. Four separate times, the Saskatchewan Roughriders and Ottawa Rough Riders met in the Grey Cup finals, prompting joking predictions from sportswriters that 'the rough riders' would win it all.
