Make a weekend of it with your family and friends and head to Winnipeg for your action packed getaway. If you're a sports lover, then your next trip to Winnipeg should include...

Winnipeg Jets

True North Sports and Entertainment

True North Sports and Entertainment

If ever there was a hockey city full of passionate fans, it’s right here with the Winnipeg Jets. Whether it’s a regular season game, or a playoff “Whiteout,” Jets fans come prepared to cheer on their team all season long. Take in a game at Canada Life Centre and feel the intensity of a city who loves its NHL hockey team to its very core. Nestled in the heart of Winnipeg’s downtown, the state-of-the-art arena boasts top notch dining and cold beer. Single game tickets are regularly available for purchase.

Insider tip: When the Canadian national anthem is sung take special note of the line 'True north strong and free' when fans belt out the words 'True North' with emphasis in honour of the team's owner for bringing back its NHL team after a 16 year hiatus.

Manitoba Moose

Before we had the Winnipeg Jets 2.0, we had the Manitoba Moose--Winnipeg's AHL team. If you've got kids in tow, then a Moose game is the perfect (and more affordable) alternative to all the same live hockey action and atmosphere you'll get from a Jets game, including the same rink. Don't forget to say hello to Mick E. Moose--the team's loveable mascot.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

When the grass comes out, so do Winnipeg’s football fans. Winnipeg's CFL team, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers — also known as the blue and gold — inspires legions of fans, all inside the stunning IG Field. With back-to-back Grey Cup titles in 2019 and 2021 (the 2020 CFL season was cancelled), the Bombers are a team you won’t want to miss! Pick up your tickets and join in the festivities.

Winnipeg Goldeyes

Another Winnipeg summer sporting pastime happens at Shaw Park with the Winnipeg Goldeyes. With tickets starting as low as $10, a playground right on site, numerous delicious food options, and a beautiful air-conditioned family room, there is no better way to spend a sunny summer afternoon with the family. Situated right in downtown Winnipeg, the views from the stadium can't be beat. Don’t forget to check out their Craft Beer Corner and grab a cold one in a beer bat!

Winnipeg Sea Bears

On November 9, 2022, the Canadian Elite Basketball League announced its 10th franchise would be the Winnipeg Sea Bears. As Manitoba’s only professional basketball team since 2001, fans across the province are excited to gather around the court at Canada Life Centre on May 27, 2023.

Valour FC

When football and the occasional live music aren’t happening at IG Field, you’ll find a loud, devoted crowd in the stands for Valour FC. Winnipeg’s first Canadian Premier League soccer team, Valour FC has accumulated quite the dedicated fan base. Make sure to check out section 144 during games, otherwise known lovingly as The Trench, to witness the Red River Rising Supporters and their love for the team.
