Thanks to the earlier start to the regular-season, the Saskatchewan Roughriders will start training camp earlier than normal…and, once again, it will be in Saskatoon. The Green and White announced a sixth consecutive year of holding training camp away from Regina. The annual preparation starts May 20 and runs through June 6…just two days before the Riders play their second and final pre-season game at Mosaic Stadium against Calgary. Saskatchewan opens the regular season June 15 at home against Toronto. As was the case the last two years, the Roughriders will hold practice sessions at, both, Griffiths Stadium and Saskatoon Minor Football Field over the 18 days of camp. Following is the news release from the Riders…
DATE: April 3, 2018
