A report in Winnipeg on Friday suggested that the current site for the new proposed stadium was getting a rivalry from 2 other city locations.
1- Point Douglas a spot near downtown that is adjacent to the beautiful city roadway called WATERFRONT drive. I've been to the downtown FORKS and this is one of the cities best attractions.
2- Convention centre. It would developed on a 2 spot parking lot. It would be domed and connected to the city Convention centre.
As of Saturday report in Winnipeg that Point Douglas was the front runner but as of Sunday morning i've learned from some sources in Winnipeg that the Blue Bombers are going to anounce on or about the first home game this week that the Blue Bombers and David Asper along with the city of Winnipeg and Federal government have agreed on building a $275 multi-purpose facility at the Covention centre location.
The stadium will seat between 33,000-36,000 with room to expand to 40,000 for Grey Cups or larger events.
It will be a domed stadium.
Part of the agreement that the Blue Bombers will also operate along with the Convention centre a newly developed entertainment centre located within the facility.
It will house sports bars, restaurants, sport museum, fitness centre, and also commercial develepment alongside another building connected to the new facility.
Another report is the city may be building another underground shopping walkway. But this has not been finalized yet.
So be prepared for the big news later this week.
