The Winnipeg Blue Bombers kick off their 2013 CFL season on June 27 with the grand opening of the brand new Investors Group Field against the Montreal Alouettes.

That game is also the first one of the entire CFL season.

The team unveiled its 2013 schedule on Tuesday. Three of the Bombers first five games will be at home while five of the nine home contests will be Friday night tilts.

"We are extremely excited with the release of our schedule and we believe our fans have a lot to look forward to this upcoming season," Bomber president and CEO Garth Buchko stated in a news release.

"The fact that our team gets to host the first game of the year in all of the CFL is very exciting and we anticipate a great season both on the field and in the stands as kickoff the inaugural season at our new stadium," he said.

Although the Alouettes are first to visit the new stadium for the regular season, the the defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts will actually be the first team to play at Investors Group Field. They take on the Bombers in a pre-season game on June 12.
