Bombers on pace to set CFL record in Grey Cup merchandise sales


WINNIPEG, MB., December 2, 2019 - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers would like to thank all fans who celebrated the team?s 107th Grey Cup win over the past week. Community celebrations kicked off the moment the team landed at Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport Monday afternoon to a crowd filling the entire first floor of the terminal.

On Tuesday, the parade hosted by the City of Winnipeg that wove down Portage Avenue all the way to the Forks brought over 10,000 fans to line the streets downtown. The team then hosted a Grey Cup social at the RBC Convention Centre Friday night that saw over 2,500 more fans come to celebrate and take photos with the team and the Grey Cup, and the following morning an astounding 5,000-plus fans returned to the Convention Centre for a hugely successful family event.

"The response from our fans has been tremendous. The passion that fans have shown for our team is so positive for our city and province," said Wade Miller, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club. "Our team is meeting this week to find more ways to share the Grey Cup with the province. We are so grateful for our fan support province-wide and look forward to sharing this championship with them."

New Grey Cup merchandise is arriving daily in both the Bomber Store at IG Field and St. Vital Centre holiday store location. 

"The first week of Grey Cup merchandise sales has been extremely strong and we are on pace to sell the most Grey Cup merchandise in the history of the CFL," said Miller. "We know our fan base is the strongest in the league and I have no doubt we will surpass Saskatchewan's record set in 2013."

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in a decisive 33-12 victory in the 107th Grey Cup held Sunday November 24th in Calgary. 2020 season tickets are now on sale at www.bluebombers.com/2020-season-tickets

Couple that with 800,000 more viewers for this year's Grey Cup CFL you should give a huge thank you to Manitoba and Bomber fans across Canada. To beat Rider fan merch sales is incredible!

Not beaten the greenies yet, but we probably will!  That WM comment was brilliant, essentially making it a challenge: "c'mon Winnipeg, show that you're the better fan base than the hated greenies!"

As for the viewers, I bet a ton of that had to do with the fact is wasn't CGY vs who-cares-from-the-east.  Boy those CGY GCs get boring year after year, where the only reason to watch is to see how they blow it!

Does anyone know if the STH discount applies to the GC gear?  I would expect it does?  I know there will be a ton of that gear under our tree this year.

Do the Bombers get all the profit or does the league take a cut ?

Lol guess that explains why I still haven't received an email saying my online order is ready for pick up.  Should have just went down there day one.

Good to know.  I selected in store pickup instead of shipping to my house thinking they would just hold a couple for me since they processed my payment right away, guess I was wrong.

I purchased 2 jackets, 2 hoodie's, 2 hats, 2 t-shirts, 1 banner, and a new 3 x 5 flag. I just received a email says all items will be shipped on December 7th, expect the banner as is on back order.
