    the winnipeg blue bombers (legal name: winnipeg football club) are a professional canadian football team based in winnipeg, manitoba. they are currently members of the west division of the canadian football league (cfl). they play their home games at ig field after many years of playing at the since demolished canad inns stadium.[4]

    the blue bombers were founded in 1930 as the winnipeg football club, which has always been the organization's legal name. unlike most other professional teams in the four most popular north american team sports (but much more common in soccer, especially in europe) the official legal name winnipeg football club continues to see significant everyday use alongside its nickname, particularly in local media and especially when reporting on the club's business affairs. another unique aspect to the club compared to other north american professional sports teams (but also more common in europe) is that it is organized as a corporation without share capital, meaning no one person or entity "owns" the team - while there are two other "community-owned" non-profit professional football teams in the cfl and one in the nfl, unlike the winnipeg football club they all have shareholders.

    since their establishment, the blue bombers have won the league's grey cup championship 11 times, most recently in 2019 when they defeated the hamilton tiger-cats 33–12 in the 107th grey cup. the team holds the record for most grey cup appearances of any team (25) and were the first club not located in ontario or quebec to win a championship.[5]
