Saskatchewan Roughrider President/CEO Jim Hopson announced today a partnership between the team and the Host Organizing Committee for the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship. The Host Organizing Committee has designated special sections in both the Brandt Centre in Regina and Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon as Riderville, allowing the Rider Nation to be there to cheer on Team Canada in their quest for a sixth straight Gold Medal.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for the Roughrider organization and we are very thankful and excited to become involved,” stated Hopson. “The province of Saskatchewan and its people have always proved themselves when thrust in the international spotlight and I know this year’s World Junior Hockey Championship will be a remarkable success. The magnitude of this event and the province’s support of the Roughriders make this opportunity a natural fit.”
As part of this special offer, every Rider season ticket holder, flex pack holder, Club Seating patron or share Owner who purchases a World Junior ticket package will receive a day pass to Riderville at the 2009 Grey Cup, front of the line ticket purchase for selected events at the Brandt Centre and an entry in a draw for a chance to win one of the following:
