Brandon football fans will get their Winnipeg Blue Bombers fix during the off-season at an upcoming Wheat Kings game.
The first-ever Blue Bombers Night is being hosted by the hockey club at Westoba Place on January 18.
Blue Bombers quarterback Matt Nichols will be in attendance as the Wheat Kings take on the Kootenay Ice at 7:30 p.m. Nichols will take part in the ceremonial opening face-off and will sign autographs during the first intermission.
“I can’t wait to meet the community in Brandon and attend my first Wheat Kings game,” Nichols said in a release.
“Manitobans are passionate fans no matter the sport, and I’m looking forward to making the trip.”
