Champions Plaza: Aug 27, 2010

Last season, the Huskies introduced Champions Plaza at Griffiths Stadium. There is a flag commemorating each of the Huskies three Vanier Cup Victories: 1990, 1996 and 1998. There is also one flag to recognize all of the Huskies Hardy Cup victories and one each for the Churchill and Uteck Bowl Victories from various seasons. Prior to each home game, the University of Saskatchewan Huskies Football Program honours its Alumni.

During the ceremony on August 27 against the Western Ontario, over 4200 Huskies fans joined the Alumni, stood on their feet and cheered as the Alumni Flag was raised.

As many of you know we raise a special Flag at each home game to celebrate a generation of Huskie Football or a special cause. You may have noticed that Champions Plaza looks a little different than last season and one of the changes is that we have two less flag poles currently.

So to celebrate progress, even if it means some changes to Champions Plaza, and the tremendous new Club House being erected adjacent to Champions Plaza we decided to raise the Under Construction Flag which Celebrates a New Dog House.
