The Winnipeg Blue Bombers will announce Wednesday that they actually turned a profit despite another losing season on the gridiron, club president Jim Bell confirmed Tuesday.

"We're very pleased," Bell said. "We certainly we would have liked to have won more games on the field last year and it's been well-documented that, how many game were there that we lost by four points or less — nine? But having said that, when you look at our financial statement, it's obvious that our fans were loyal, very supportive and tomorrow, we will present a profit on our financial statement for 2010 and we're very, very pleased with that — not only in what we accomplished last year but what we believe in going forward this year and as we move into our new home."

Winnipeg went 4-14 the last season and it is rare for a losing CFL club to finish in the black.

Bell, however, would not disclose how much that profit is, but did indicate that it is a healthy one.

We're excited about it," he said. "We're excited about it. We think it's significant."
