Winnipeg Blue Bombers looking ahead to regular season, home opener, and NFL game

With the team’s preseason wrapping up Thursday night in Saskatchewan, Winnipeg Blue Bombers president and CEO Wade Miller is looking ahead to the regular season and the team’s home opener June 27.“I do think that starting a little later in June is helpful,” Miller told 680 CJOB.Story continues below“Early in May and June is busy for everybody, and it gives everybody time – for fans to say, ‘hey, it’s football season’. We’ve had an awful spring, as we all know, in Winnipeg and Manitoba, so it’s nice to see the sun shining and people are starting to think about what they’re doing for the summer.“We’re moving along quite well, not having our home opener til June 27… so we’re still pushing hard for the ticket sales. That home opener is going to be a great matchup against Edmonton. We also have the Reklaws, who are playing at half time, so a big country theme for that one. It’s a great game day experience.”View link »View original article here Source
