The official team helmet of the CFL Canadian Football League team Saskatchewan Roughriders.Saskatchewan Roughriders
The Saskatchewan Roughriders are a Canadian Football League team based in Regina, Saskatchewan. They were founded a hundred years ago, in 1910. Originally known as the Regina Rugby Club from 1910 to 1923, they changed their name to the Regina Roughriders in 1924 and finally to the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1948. The team is the current West Division Champions and have won three Grey Cups over their 100 year history, with 17 players inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.

The team draws fans from across Saskatchewan and Canada; these are affectionately known as the "Rider Nation". The fans are known for their loyalty and "Rider Pride", and it is not unusual to find a group of Rider fans following the team on their road games across the country. The Riders sells more merchandise and draw the highest TV ratings of any team in the CFL, despite playing in by far the smallest market. Their rivalry with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers is arguably the most passionate and intense in the league, as games between the two are often sold out before the beginning of the season.
