CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon is expected to announce Winnipeg will host the 2015 Grey Cup.

Bombers president and CEO Wade Miller and premier Greg Selinger are also taking part.

The Bombers were promised a Grey Cup by the CFL when they broke ground on Investors Group Field.

One stumbling block to the event is an enclosed press box at the new stadium. Cohon visited the park last summer and stated the Bombers would have to convert the open-air press box before being granted a Grey Cup. This remains a work in progress but is expected to be finished soon.

The Free Press will be live streaming the press conference beginning at 11:45 a.m.
