1. Flag Raising
The raising of the 13th Man Flag before the game is a must-see part of any Blue Bombers game. The tradition is a big part of the pre-game ceremonies and an excellent way to honor the fans, so make sure you don’t miss it during your trip to Winnipeg.
2. Tailgate at the Plaza
Located outside Gate 2, Tailgate at the Plaza is your pre-game tailgating destination at Bombers games. Here you’ll be able to grab something to eat or drink, meet former players, and take part in a variety of activities. If you want to tailgate before the game, then the Tailgate at the Plaza is the place to do so.
3. Supporter Groups
Those of you who are diehard Bombers fans will want to get involved in a supporter group. The supporter groups at Investors Group Field are home to the loudest fans in the stadium so join one of these groups to get involved in the action.
4. Winnipeg Blue Bombers-Saskatchewan Roughriders Rivalry
The Roughriders are the Blue Bombers’ archrivals, and as a result, you won’t want to miss it when the Blue Bombers come to town. Games between the Blue Bombers and Roughriders typically sell out before the season and feature the liveliest crowds of the season, so if you can only attend one game, then make sure it’s a Blue Bombers-Roughriders game.
5. Cheer and Dance Team
