Investors Group Field, despite its early struggles, is exactly what Lyle Bauer envisioned it would be back when he would tell anyone who would listen that the Winnipeg Football Club needed a new stadium.

It is already making the club lots and lots of money.

The WFC released its annual report on Monday, and the bottom line is the bottom line looked great. When all was said and done, the organization made a net profit of $2,074,222. Were it not for one-time startup costs like the installation of concession stands and the grand opening ceremony on June 27, the profit would have been just more than $2.9 million.

“We’re proud of where we’re at,” president and CEO Wade Miller said Monday, “and we’ll do better.”

The financial figures are pretty good when you consider the Bombers posted a 3-15 record and won more games in Quebec (two) than it did in its brand new stadium (one) last season.
