If you're still looking for tickets to Friday's Saskatchewan Roughrider game, you won't be getting them from the Rider ticket office.

On Thursday morning, the green and white announced their game against the Calgary Stampeders at Mosaic Stadium is sold out with a capacity of more than 30,000 people.

Rider President and CEO Jim Hopson says it means a lot to have the support of Riderville when the team hasn't been performing well.

“The Rider fans are there for life. They love the team. They want to see us do better and we expect to do that. But, they love going out and supporting the team. They know that the support we get in the stands does make a difference.”

Hopson says the team plans to turn things around and a few wins would put them back in the thick of it.

The remaining home games are also tracking well on their way to sell outs. The Labour Day Classic has been sold out since tickets went on sale.
