CFL Blue Bombers Offering Options To Ticket Holders With Obstructed-View Seats
Published October 31, 2012
BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE: In Winnipeg, Paul Friesen wrote at the new stadium "the view, generally, is spectacular. And it’s not exclusive to one segment of society." The C$20 upper corner seats for "the penny pinchers might be the best deal in pro football, while the high rollers will love to be seen in the four-seat 'loges,' complete with swivel chairs and table service" (WINNIPEG SUN, 10/30). Also in Winnipeg, Kevin Hirschfield reports Blue Bombers fans will "get a chance to own their piece" of the 59-year-old Canad Inns Stadium when the team moves into Investors Group Field next year. The team yesterday announced plans "for an asset sale, where seats, lockers, and even the infamous urinal trough ... will be available for sale to the public." Season-ticket holders will "get first dibs on the items, as the sale is exclusive to them from Nov. 29-Dec.1." Everybody else will "then get their crack at the sale from Dec. 2-16, or until inventory is gone" (WINNIPEG SUN, 10/31).
