Winnipeg Blue Bombers fans hoping to catch the 17th annual Banjo Bowl live and in person are out of luck if they don’t already have tickets — the biggest date on the team’s calendar is already sold out.
🗣 Let's get IG Field 𝗟𝗢𝗨𝗗 🗣

Fans who were able to snag tickets to the traditional home-turf battle between the Bombers and the arch-rival Saskatchewan Roughriders will be able to show up early, the team said, with a pre-game tailgate area opening at noon Saturday, and IG Field officially opening its doors at 1:30 p.m.
The West Division-leading Bombers are hoping to repeat the success of last week’s Labour Day Classic — a 23-8 victory over the Riders.
