WINNIPEG - The official announcement has yet to be made but locals are already getting excited about Grey Cup week coming back to town.

The CFL is ready to announce that Winnipeg will be awarded the 2015 Grey Cup game on Wednesday.

"That's great that the Grey Cup is coming back here, and it's been so successful in the past," Manitoba Chamber of Commerce president/CEO Chuck Davidson said Monday.

"It should create well over $100 million in economic impact. That's about what it was the last time. But the biggest thing is, it focuses on your community for a full week."
