Mayors of Regina and Montreal agree to Grey Cup wager

REGINA, Nov. 25 /CNW/ - Mayor of Regina Pat Fiacco and Montreal Mayor Gerald Tremblay have agreed on a friendly bet between the two cities in advance of Sunday's 97th Grey Cup Game in Calgary. The game features the Western Division Champion Saskatchewan Roughriders and the Eastern Division Champion Montreal Alouettes.

The bet will see the Mayor of the losing team purchase two pairs of season tickets for the winning team. The Mayor of the winning city will then donate the tickets to charities of their choosing.

"No matter which team wins the game on Sunday, the real winners will be the charities that get to send deserving individuals to see their favourite football team in action," said Mayor Pat Fiacco. "I'm looking forward to the game and a Rider victory."

In addition to the season tickets, the losing Mayor will have to wear the winning team's jersey at a City Council meeting and fly the winning team's flag in front of City Hall for the day.

The 97th Grey Cup game will be played this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. Regina time.
