WINNIPEG - Home-and-homes will be the theme of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers season in 2013.
The Blue and Gold will have five instances where they play the opposition two weeks in a row, which is frowned upon by head coaches because it’s difficult to beat the same team in consecutive weeks.
Five of Winnipeg's home games this season are on Friday, two are on Saturday, one is on Sunday, and one is on Thursday.
Winnipeg kicks off the regular season at the new Investors Group Field with an exhibition game on Wednesday, June 12, against Toronto, and their home-opener will be held on Thursday, June 27, against Montreal. The kickoff will be a special time of 8 p.m., and it will be the first game of the CFL regular season.
