REGINA -- The Canadian Football League's Saskatchewan Roughriders are getting a new stadium that is being described as iconic and bold.

The team, the city of Regina and the province have unveiled the design for a 33,000-seat facility that can be expanded to hold 40,000 fans for special events.

The stadium is to have wider seats, a sunken bowl for easier spectator access and expansive concourses.

Rider board chairman Roger Branvold says the $278-million stadium will make for a better game day experience for fans.

The team also announced that its future home will continue to carry the name Mosaic Stadium when it hosts its first CFL game in June 2017.

The current stadium, near downtown Regina, originally started as a rugby field in 1910, and is known for wind that will knock your socks off and old wooden bench-style seating.
