Manitoba is home to the loudest fans, which means catching a game – be it hockey, football, baseball or soccer – is an electrifying experience. Canada Life Centre is home ice for the NHL’s Winnipeg Jets and the AHL’s Manitoba Moose. During the summer, hometown fans cheer on their football team, the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers and soccer team, Valour FC of the Canadian Premier League at IG Field at the University of Manitoba.
Downtown’s Shaw Park is the perfect place to catch a baseball game when the Winnipeg Goldeyes step up to bat. Amateur sport in Manitoba is also a big deal – see the next hockey superstars watching the Brandon Wheat Kings and Winnipeg Ice.

Baseball & Hockey
Baseball and summer--it's a match made for enjoyment. Out at Shaw Park in downtown Winnipeg, the Goldeyes have been hitting it out of the park for decades. With its family friendly atmosphere, taking in a game is a perfect way to enjoy a summer evening.

Curling & Soccer
October will always be the true most wonderful time of the year for one chunk of Manitoba’s population: sports fans!
From being the home of Olympic champions to the home of the world’s largest curling rock, Manitoba has a proud curling heritage. Local, national and international curling events – called bonspiels – are common around the province throughout the winter.
