Bombers spend another $10M on new stadium
THE Winnipeg Blue Bombers' new stadium just got a bit fancier -- and pricier.
The club on Friday announced that another $10 million is being pumped into the facility in the form of video ribbon boards, seating and suite upgrades, improved concessions and enhanced concert-hosting potential.

"These are additions that would have been made in future years," Bombers CEO Garth Buchko said in a release, adding that making the upgrades at this point will provide "better cost-certainty, improves the stadium function, and will generate additional revenue."
The Bombers are responsible for repaying the loan over the next four years. The loan increases the team's stadium debt to $95 million and the overall cost of Investors Group Field to $200 million.
