The Winnipeg Blue Bombers will find themselves in a rematch from the 107th Grey Cup to open the 2020 CFL season when they visit the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The Blue Bombers meet their championship foes on Saturday, June 13 before returning to IG Field for their home opener against the Calgary Stampeders on Friday, June 26.

Bomber fans will have plenty of opportunities to see the Blue and Gold at home in a series of late-week games in the summer months.

“We’re very happy to be able to once again offer our fans a great mix of Thursday and Friday evening games in the coming year,” said Wade Miller, Blue Bombers president and CEO.

“We look forward to raising our championship banner at our home opener June 26 as part of Thursday Night Football. We appreciate the hard work the CFL has put in to accommodate all teams and release the schedule before the holidays.”

The popular Banjo Bowl game against the visiting Saskatchewan Roughriders is set for Saturday, September 12 at 3 p.m.

The Bombers host Edmonton on May 24 for their first pre-season game. Winnipeg will travel to Saskatchewan for their second and final pre-season tilt against the Roughriders on June 5.
