GET READY TO PLAY 13 STILL TIME TO SCORE GREAT SEATS From goal post to goal post, seats high and low, Investors Group Field offers great sightlines from all angles, making everyone a winner when it comes to seating... and there are still great seats left. "We know that not everyone lives a Monday to Friday, nine-to-five lifestyle," he said, "which is why we reintroduced the flexibility of the Pick 10* program." "The unique element at the new stadium is that a lot of the seats are situated at angles and generally oriented toward the middle of the field," said Fin Paterson, vice-president and director of sales for the Winnipeg Football Club. "This means fans will experience a more intimate setting that feels closer to a large hockey arena than what we are familiar with in a huge football stadium." 'THE UNIQUE ELEMENT AT THE NEW STADIUM IS THAT A LOT OF THE SEATS ARE SITUATED AT ANGLES AND GENERALLY ORIENTED TOWARD THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD.' If fans are still in the market for season tickets with great sightlines, Paterson offered a bit of insider advice. "If you want to see more of the play development on the field, select seats in the 200 sections," he said. "If speed and game intensity is what you're after, look throughout the lower bowl. Truly, there is not a bad sightline in the place," he said. Paterson also pointed to the Pick 10 program which is aimed at fans who need extra flexibility due to the demands of shift work or busy travel schedules. As part of the program, fans purchase 10 tickets then decide how to use them. "They can take 10 people to one game or go to five with a friend or family member," said Paterson. "It's all about choice and flexibility." In terms of other seating options for fans, Paterson said there's a huge family zone with section 118 designated as alcohol-free. If fans are still studying the best way to get to games, Paterson reminded them that only those with prepaid seasonal parking passes will be allowed to park on campus. "The good news is that there are still parking passes available but they are going fast," he said. "We want fans to get in knowing they have a place to park that is a 10-minute walk, maximum, to the stadium," Paterson said. "Having said that, we also have a very strong focus on active transportation and encourage all fans to consider carpooling." *Does not apply to Home Opener or Banjo Bowl. s SETTING THE INDUSTRY STANDARD FOR OVER 30 YEARS uperior A sphalt Paving Co.
