The Saskatchewan Roughriders, in partnership with the City of Regina, are pleased to announce that Taylor Field will see the installation of new turf for the 2007 CFL season.
The 2007 Turf Replacement Plan will be cost shared by the City and the Roughriders. It will bring forth numerous benefits not only to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but to all local amateur sports organizations who utilize the facility. The plan will include consultation and input from those organizations.
â€?The City of Regina is extremely pleased to commit $600,000 towards this project,â€? said Mayor Pat Fiacco. â€œTaylor Field is a vital facility in our community, not only serving the Saskatchewan Roughriders and numerous local amateur sports groups but also contributing to our local economy through the many events it hosts. This is an investment that will benefit the entire city.â€?
â€œI would like to thank the City for its continued hard work and cooperation to make Taylor Field a top rate facility,â€? said Roughrider President/CEO Jim Hopson. â€œThe installation of new turf is an exciting venture, and would not be possible without the Cityâ€™s support.â€?
The City of Regina has committed $100,000 for design work this year and $500,000 for the purchase and installation of the turf in 2007. The Saskatchewan Roughriders will contribute matching amounts towards the project.
The new turf will have a rubber infill, and will be more like natural grass and less abrasive than the artificial turf now used. By the start of the 2006 CFL season, six of the other seven CFL stadiums will be using this type of artificial turf system.
The new turf will be installed at Taylor Field in the spring of 2007.
