Investors Group Field has suffered water damage as a result of the spring thaw.

BBB Stadium Inc. confirmed in a statement on Tuesday that water has made its way into the suites and visitors locker room area.

“This has been an ongoing issue with the facility; the designer and building contractor are aware of the matter and are in the process of remediation, and identifying solutions to avoid future damage,” said chair Andrew Konowalchuk.

Konowalchuk said the issue won’t impact scheduled events at the home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, such as the Canada vs. USA women’s soccer match on May 8.

In late March, the province announced $3 million in construction completion for the stadium to make it a year-round facility and improve energy efficiency. The total cost of the stadium is now pegged at nearly $210 million.
