The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are pleased to announce that more than 34,250 tickets have been sold at Investors Group Field for the 2015 Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Banjo Bowl.
Regular capacity at the stadium is 33,234 but that number is currently increased due to the additional End Zone Skyview seating for the 103rd Grey Cup Championship Game.
A limited number of tickets are still available in that area.
"The rivalry between the Blue Bombers and the Roughriders is still one of the best in Canadian football, and the support we get from the fans who attend this game every year is proof of that," said Winnipeg Blue Bombers President and CEO Wade Miller.
Kickoff for the game is 5:30pm on Saturday, but the festivities at Investors Group Field begin well before the game.
Four hours before kickoff, at 1:30pm, the incredibly popular Tailgate at the Plaza by Duraco Windows gets underway. Located outside of Gate 2 at the corner of University Crescent and Chancellor Matheson Road, Tailgate at the Plaza by Duraco Windows is the perfect spot to meet friends for a pre-game party. Fans can purchase beverages and food, listen to music spun by our DJs, and mingle with mascots Buzz & Boomer and the Blue Bomber Dance & Cheer Team. There is also a family zone with big inflatables, temporary tattoos, and the True Blue Hairdo station.
As well, the famous Bud Big Rig will be set up for party-goers in the Tailgate at the Plaza by Duraco Windows area.
To get to the game, the Blue Bomber Park & Ride service gets rolling at 3:00pm. Winnipeg Transit will run its regular game day routes as normal, and there is also parking available in on-campus lots.
