[b]WINNIPEG — The 103rd Grey Cup was a profitable success for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
The Winnipeg Football Club announced Monday that the game and festival brought in $7.1 million in net profits.
“The profits were aligned with our original projected targets for the Winnipeg Football Club,? said Wade Miller, president of the Club.
The profits from the November 2015 Grey Cup were more than double than the last time Winnipeg hosted the event. The club made $3.2 million hosting the 94th Grey Cup in 2006.
The Bombers already paid $1.5 million of the Grey Cup profits to Triple B Stadium Inc., for stadium improvement to Investors Group Field.
“The remaining $5.6 million of profits forms part of the Club’s long-range plan to provide financial stability going forward,? said the Bombers in a release.
According to the Bombers, the game and the week-long celebration leading up to it brought in $80 million for the city.[/b][url=http://globalnews.ca/news/2630806/winnipeg-blue-bombers-bring-in-7-1m-from-grey-cup/?sf24113551=1]http://globalnews.ca/news/2630806/winni ... 24113551=1[/url]
