Saskatchewan Roughriders and other local sport teams, and fans alike will be enjoying the new Mosaic Football Stadium with estimated completion by summer/fall 2016, allowing the Roughriders to play on their new and improved turf for the 2017 pre-season.

One of Saskatchewan's largest infrastructure developments in their history, the new Mosaic football stadium is being constructed for the fixed cost of $278 Million Canadian dollars by PCL Construction.

The new stadium is being built not too far away from the present Taylor Field stadium, close to downtown Regina's Evraz Place.

The stadium will amalgamate with existing facilities, such as the Brandt Centre, the Credit Union Eventplex, the Queensbury Convention Centre, the Sportplex and the Cooperators Centre, in an easy to access manner ideal for gathering and meetings.

Originally designed for 33,000 capacity, talk have begun to expand up to 40,000 maximum capacity, as the new mosaic stadium will be the busiest complex for Roughrider games, world class international sporting events, music concerts and more.

With a total floor area is 920,000 square feet the stadium with feature an open air design, a translucent roof which will cover half of the seating area, thirty eight restrooms, 9 elevators, a general admission lounge, wide seats with arm rests and cup holders, and a sunken lower bowl for the field.

With 68% of the seating to be located in the lower bowl, the overall height of the stadium to ground level will be lower than other average sports stadiums.

Excavation has begun in August of 2014, which will involve a depth of 10 meters to be excavated to facilitate the lower bowl. It is estimated the excavation process, which will see up to 300,000 cubic meters of dirt and fill material to be taken out, will be completed by the end of October 2014.

To complete the stadium construction an estimated 300 workers will be hired, 4 tower cranes will be utilized, steel cladding, and approximately 40,000 cubic meters of concrete will be used,

The roof will be concaved and covered with PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), which is a durable, wax-like, and non flammable synthetic resin. The translucency of the roof will allow spectators to see the sky at any hour of day. A a Tyndall stone finish will be used for the bottom section of the facade for dressing and design.

As a revitalization initiative, the existing Taylor Field Mosaic Stadium, once demolished, will be reconstructed as a complete neighborhood to include a blend of housing, greenery, and commercial retail shopping.
