WINNIPEG - Next year’s Grey Cup game will have a capacity of 41,000 and generate a profit of at least $3 million for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, likely much more.

That from Blue Bombers president/CEO Wade Miller as the CFL announced the 2015 championship game will be in Winnipeg at a splashy news conference at Investors Group Field, today.

CFL commissioner Mark Cohon made it official, at the same time offering up a challenge to the Bomber organization.

“The last three Grey Cups, the host team won the Grey Cup — so the pressure’s on,” Cohon said.
