101st Grey Cup Tickets to go on lottery

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

If you don’t already have your tickets for the 101st Grey Cup in Regina, Saskatchewan, the remaining 5,000 unallocated tickets are set to go on lottery. The championship game will take place November 24th, 2013 at Mosaic Stadium in front of an estimated 45,000 fans in Rider Nation.

According to Neil Donnelly – executive director of the Grey Cup Festival – approximately 95% of season ticket holders opted to purchase Grey Cup tickets.

Donnelly was also quoted from the Leader Post in Regina, SK:

“It shows the amount of support that we have in Saskatchewan for anything to do with the Riders. The season-ticket base is so high here and you have obligations with other teams and the league and sponsors, it just left such little inventory for us to sell to the general public that we felt we wanted to take what we had and do it in the most fair way we could.”

Details for the 101st Grey Cup festivities are starting to filter in, with Saskatoon-based band The Sheepdogs announced as a headline concert for Grey Cup week.
