The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are on financial track to make all their loan payments as scheduled, despite a 2-11 season, falling ticket sales and unexpected expenses in their new stadium this year.
Bombers CEO Wade Miller, while refusing to elaborate any further or take any questions, issued the following statement to the Winnipeg Free Press this morning:
"The WFC is on target to meet its obligations."
There had been concerns, expressed as high as the premier's office, that the team's difficulties on and off the field this season would prevent the club from making the first of what will be annual payments of approximately $4.5 million a year to pay off the new stadium.
