CFL, Roughriders jointly announce 2022 Grey Cup game officially sold out

TORONTO — The 109th Grey Cup is officially a sellout.

Both the CFL and Saskatchewan Roughriders made the announcement Wednesday.

The 2022 Grey Cup game will be played Nov. 20 at Mosaic Stadium with over 33,000 spectators on hand.

"The Grey Cup is more than a game – it's about unity, strength and community," CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in a statement. "It's a shared legacy between our great game, our world-class players and our incredible fans, and we couldn’t be more excited to gather in a packed-to-the-brim Mosaic Stadium, to write the 109th chapter of this story together."

The Grey Cup game will be the first at Mosaic Stadium, which in 2016 replaced Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field.

Regina last hosted the CFL championship contest in 2013 when the Saskatchewan Roughriders defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 45-23 for their last league title.

"We have been absolutely floored by the support that we have received for the 109th Grey Cup in Saskatchewan," said Craig Reynolds, the Riders president/CEO and Grey Cup Festival co-chair. “We are looking forward to hosting fans from across the country at Mosaic Stadium for the championship game, and thousands more for a once-in-a-life time celebration of Canadian football at our Grey Cup Festival."
