Mosaic Stadium will again play host to a Toronto Raptors’ viewing party on Thursday.
The Golden State Warriors forced a Game 6 with a 106-105 win on Monday night.
Thousands of people came out to Mosaic Stadium on Monday to watch the game in Regina’s version of Jurassic Park. The stadium has the largest MaxTron screen in Canada.
"They're Canada's team," Mayor Michael Fougere said. "To make it this far I think is really a good story for the Raptors, and who doesn't love a story like that?"
The Saskatchewan Roughriders’ season opener against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats will air on the big screen first, before switching to the Raptors’ game.
The CFL has moved kickoff up half an hour to accommodate the start of the Raptors' game. The game will begin at 5:00 p.m. local time.
The city will offer free transit shuttle service for those headed to Mosaic Stadium on Thursday.
Admission is free.
