The Saskatchewan Roughriders are hoping to host the 2013 Grey Cup game. On Tuesday, Riders chairman Roger Brandvold was somewhat coy.

“There are discussions at the CFL table. Typically, the CFL will announce it about two years ahead of time. My best answer for that, is stay tuned until the fall,” Brandvold said.

The Roughriders last hosted the Grey Cup game in 2003. The 2011 Grey Cup game will be held at B.C. Place in Vancouver, while the 2012 championship game will be held at the Rogers Centre in Toronto.

There's no word how plans for a new stadium in Regina will affect the bid.
