The Winnipeg Blue Bombers christened the new Investors Group Field hosting a packed house of over 33,000 fans. While the Blue Bombers lost on the field, they did launch a new, long-term partnership with Pointstreak 5050 generating almost $129,000 for charities and causes throughout Manitoba. Throughout the planning stages for the state-of-the-art stadium, the Blue Bombers worked to incorporate Pointstreak 5050's technology to increase the size of their commitment to the community and create a better experience for their fans. Last night, they saw those plans realized as the Blue Bombers 50/50 raffle hit new highs. However, this was just the start as the Blue Bombers, their fans, and Pointstreak 5050 are set to create a foundation for the future.
The Blue Bombers commitment to the community is unparalleled. From the top of the organization down they have embraced their role as a leader and their primary focus is and has always been, serving the fans and the Winnipeg community.
Kevin Lovitt, President of Pointstreak 5050 added, "Working with the Blue Bombers and building our platform inside Investors Group Field allows us to play a small role in supporting the causes and charities that are so important to Winnipeg. The Blue Bombers have a tremendous commitment to the Winnipeg community and Pointstreak 5050 has worked very hard to deliver a fundraising platform to support that commitment. Last night's totals are proof that the fans love the Pointstreak 5050 system and we look forward to building a program that grows throughout the years.
