36 Your Guide to Investors Group Field ESKIMOS FAN ADMITS STADIUM ENVY Free Press letter to the editor from May 15, 2013: I've been a CFL fan, and specifically an Edmonton Eskimos fan, for my entire 57 years. I've just got to hand it to your city, though, because you may have just built the best football stadium ever. Sure, there are bigger and more grandiose stadiums being built everywhere, but that new Investors Group Field is perfect for the CFL, and I think every other city in the league needs to take note and build similar ones. I hope I can get a ticket for the opening game. It will be an awesome experience. Well done, Winnipeg. Randy Thompson, Edmonton LEADING THE WAY WITH CLOSED CAPTIONING FOR HEARING-IMPAIRED BLUE BOMBER FANS, technology will help ensure they don't miss a thing at Investors Group Field this season. 'THE FACT THIS IS ONE OF THE FIRST IN CANADA MAKES IT REALLY EXCITING.' Congratulations to the Bombers and Bisons on your new home from CMH Construction Gunars Butkans, vice-president of the Manitoba Deaf Association, said fans who are deaf or hard of hearing often don't know what's been announced during games. "With the introduction of closed captioning, they can share the excitement," he said. "We're very appreciative of this additional service since it provides an equal opportunity for all." Investors Group Field will stand out as one of the leaders across the country by offering closed captioning on its two massive video boards, something that older stadiums have a hard time doing due to older technology. "We are thrilled to offer closed captioning and are very pleased that Polo Park Hearing has come on board to sponsor this service for our hearing-impaired fans," said Fin Paterson, vice-president and director of sales for the Winnipeg Football Club. As owner of Polo Park Hearing Centre, Leslie Holden feels it's important to give back to the community. "What a perfect opportunity to be able to help people by having closed captioning," she said. "The fact that it's one of the first in Canada makes it really, really exciting." Attention Blue Bomber Fans: We offer you the same level of professionalism and expertise that we did at the stadium. Need commercial or residential concrete work? We've a fleet of heavy equipment for any size project – large or small. We even do driveways!
