Drape yourself in green and white and don your watermelon hats as Riderville comes together on Sunday, November 11, 2018 to challenge our rivals to the east, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, in the western semi-final at Mosaic Stadium.
In addition to the football game, two other events are occurring in the area on November 11. Please consider that there may be a high volume of traffic, as well as limited parking availability. Allow extra time for travel and parking, and watch for pedestrians and trains. If finding parking in heavy traffic causes stress, consider taking the free Mosaic Stadium Shuttle bus. The Regina Police Service will have additional officers assigned to manage the high volume of traffic and to enhance safety for all game attendees and residents of the area.
Beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, November 11, there will be no vehicle traffic allowed on the 1500, 1600, and 1700 blocks of Elphinstone Street. Access will be limited to Regina Transit buses and local residents only. Fans and motorists will find road closures on:
- 1500 block of Elphinstone Street at Dewdney Avenue;

Other reminders to help everyone enjoy game days include:
- Impaired driving laws have not changed. Whether you consume alcohol or cannabis, do not drive. Be smart and plan for a safe ride home.
- Consider using FREE public transit or car-pooling to make your travel plans easier. Regina Transit has provided a FREE Mosaic Stadium Shuttle transit route which can be found at //www.regina.ca/residents/transit/rider-transit-mosaic-stadium-shuttle.
- Distracted driving is a big no. Make plans before you drive; no texting your friends about where to meet or checking the GPS while driving.
- If you want to keep your valuables, remove them from your vehicle or keep them out of sight. Always lock your vehicle doors.
- Respect the neighbourhood. Although Mosaic Stadium has relocated, it is still in a residential neighbourhood, and visitors should always ensure they park vehicles legally, refrain from littering, and respect the property of others.
Enjoy game day and be safe! Go Riders!
