After several days of celebrations in the Queen City, the countdown to kickoff is on.
The 109th Grey Cup game begins at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 20, 2022 at Mosaic Stadium.
The Regina Police Service has been working closely with our community partners to provide a safe, family-friendly environment at Regina’s REAL District during this week’s Grey Cup Festival. On Sunday, we are expecting pedestrian and vehicle traffic to increase significantly ahead of the Grey Cup game. A larger number of people and vehicles will create congestion in the residential areas surrounding Mosaic Stadium and in parking lots at REAL District.
The Regina Police Service has additional officers assigned to assist with the flow of traffic and enhance the safety of those attending the game. We ask all fans to be patient and respectful, and to keep the following things in mind when making your own Grey Cup transportation game plan.
- We strongly encourage football fans to take advantage of the FREE city-wide Grey Cup Festival Shuttle Service being offered: https://www.greycupfestival.ca/transportation/.
- Police will work with Regina Transit to ensure shuttle buses are given priority in entering and exiting the parking lot at Mosaic Stadium.
Driving and parking:
- Give yourself extra time to navigate pedestrian and vehicle traffic in the area.
- Lock your doors and do not leave valuables inside your parked vehicle.
- It will be cold; but don’t leave vehicles running and unattended.
- Park legally – no blocking driveways or alleys in the residential areas surrounding Mosaic Stadium. Please be respectful of the neighbourhoods around Mosaic Stadium; no trespassing, excessive noise, littering, etc.
- Do not drive impaired. Police officers will be present at the game and around the city to keep an eye out for any signs of impaired driving.
The Grey Cup Game Day Traffic plan will be similar to those in place at all Saskatchewan Roughrider home games at Mosaic Stadium. However, road closures usually take effect three hours prior to the game. On Grey Cup Sunday, the following road closures will be in effect six hours prior to kickoff.
