Venue Information


Canad Inns Stadium (formerly Winnipeg Stadium) is a Canadian football stadium located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The stadium, named for hotel chain Canad Inns, and originally completed in 1953, seats 29,503 for football.

The original baseball grandstands were demolished in the early 1980s to make way for the Blue Bombers' new clubhouse. Stadium renovations in the late 1980s were aimed attracting an AAA baseball club to the hitherto football-only portion of the complex. To that end, artificial turf, retractable seats on the east side stands, and new seating behind the home plate area were installed.

The original stadium held around 17,600. This was added onto in 1971 when a second deck was built onto the west side grandstand. In 1978 a second deck was added to the east side stands to bring the total seating capacity to about 32,000. With the new seats and other renovations the current capacity is 29,503 for football. A nine million dollar renovation in 1999 added new seats and among other things a new lounge and luxury seating area.

For the 2006 Grey Cup series, a large amount of temporary bleachers were put up in the south end of the football field, englarging the stadiums capacity to 44,784.
