News out of Winnipeg this week is the Bombers are opening up their training camp to fans like they did last year. The turnout was reported to be 4500. :o This year they expect the same or even higher numbers. In addition as being a great way to connect with the fanbase, opportunities exist to make a little money off of concession sales. I know the Lions had something similar for season ticket holders a little while back, but no official events are planned for training camp.
Anybody know of other teams planning similar events? The Bombers have to be leading the league in terms of attendance for these types of events. In the US, colleges host intra-squad games that draw massive crowds. If done right, CFL teams could follow suit. Really a win-win for everyone[url=http://www.680news.com/sports/article/367224--bomber-coach-proud-of-canadian-talent-as-he-prepares-to-open-camp]http://www.680news.com/sports/article/3 ... -open-camp[/url]
