Joint statement from City of Regina, Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club and Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL) regarding craft beer at Mosaic Stadium
After several months of collaborative negotiations with the Saskatchewan Craft Brewers Association (SCBA), no agreement has been reached to include local craft beer at Mosaic Stadium.
The City of Regina, who owns the stadium, granted sponsorship rights to the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club in 2013 as part of its lease agreement. The sponsorship rights include exclusive pouring rights in the stadium. The football club, and the operators of the stadium, Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL), presented two options last month that would have allowed Saskatchewan-made craft beer to be poured at all major events, including Rider home games. Unfortunately, SCBA has decided to not move forward with either of these options.
We look forward to continuing our collective approach to finding an agreement that is satisfactory to all parties in 2018.
