Hotels in Regina, SK: Celebrate the Big Game when Grey Cup 2020 Comes to Regina
Saskatchewan football fans have had to wait since 2013 for one of Canada’s biggest sporting events to return to Regina, but that seven-year itch is about to be scratched with the announcement that the 2020 Grey Cup will be held in the Queen City on Nov. 22. With the numbers the Grey Cup will likely pull in, now is a good time to start thinking about your accommodation, with hotels in Regina, SK expecting to be booked up.
Here are some ways to get to the big game, where to stay, and other incentives that will make you cheer for Regina and your team:
Enter the Fly-Zone
For those out-of-town football fans who don’t want to drive through the Prairies in early winter, don’t despair, you can easily fly from all parts of Canada into Regina International Airport (YQR). Just 15 minutes from north-end hotels near Regina’s downtown core, including the Comfort Suites, there are a number of options for ground transportation to get you to your hotel room. This includes:
- Airport car rental service
A Ball’s Throw Away
The 2020 Grey Cup will be played in Mosaic Stadium at Evraz Place, which has been home to the Saskatchewan Roughriders since 2017 after the closing of Taylor Field. The updated open-air stadium has a capacity to sit up to 40,000 people, and best of all, it’s located less than eight kilometres from the Comfort Suites Choice hotel.
Depending on traffic, it’s a short 12-minute drive south to the stadium. Or you can beat the congestion by grabbing the free shuttle to Mosaic Stadium from nearby Northgate Mall, which is only a five-minute (4.3 km) drive from the Comfort Suites. The shuttle operates during major events at Mosaic Stadium and runs continuously back and forth from the stadium two hours and 15 minutes before the game starts.
