The B.C. Lions and Montreal Alouettes will meet in the CFL championship game on Sunday night, and there are still approximately 2,300 tickets left to be purchased.
The capacity for Sunday's game is 44,784, which means approximately 42,500 tickets have already been sold.
The odds of a sellout aren't looking too good right now, but Bauer said it's not vital for the bottom line.
"I don't think the selling out is the imperative piece of it," he said. "What is imperative is that we have a very good crowd that sees the two top teams in the country and this city puts on the best show possible for the entire week.
"If we happen to sell out, that's great. But our projections and what we believe our club will come away with as a result of the Grey Cup and festivals is right on track."
The Winnipeg Football Club is still hoping to make a profit of between $2 million and $4 million, even if the game doesn't sell out.
The good news for fans who have purchased tickets is that Sunday's forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of 3 C.
