Winnipeg is putting together a bid for the 2020 Grey Cup.
The Bombers hosted the CFL championship game in 2015 when the Edmonton Eskimos beat the Ottawa Redblacks 26-20. The game was a sellout at Investors Group Field, which opened in 2013, with 36,634 fans packing that stadium. That was the fourth time Winnipeg hosted the Grey Cup and it brought $80 million to Winnipeg’s economy. Previous to 2015, the Bombers were the host club for the 2006 Grey Cup.
Saskatchewan did not bid for the 2019 Grey Cup. That could mean a prairie competition could ensue for the 2020 CFL title game.
Bombers director of public and player relations Darren Cameron refuted the report.
This is absolutely false. https://t.co/itaxvvaIqT
