The Saskatchewan Roughriders are a professional Canadian football team based in Regina, Saskatchewan. The Roughriders play in the West Division of the Canadian Football League (CFL). Founded in 1910, they were originally known as the Regina Rugby Club. They changed their name to the Regina Roughriders in 1924 then became Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1946. They played their games at Mosaic Stadium at Taylor Field since 1936 but a new stadium is in the works. Hopefully they will be in it for the 2017 season.
The team draws fans from across Saskatchewan and Canada who are affectionately known as the "Rider Nation". Their loyalty is all the more remarkable since the Roughriders play in the smallest market in the CFL, and the second-smallest major-league market in North America (only Green Bay, Wisconsin, is smaller).
