The Blue Bombers have sold a record number of season tickets for their inaugural season at Investors Group Field.

"We’re clearly thrilled with this record setting support from fans," said club president and CEO Garth Buchko.

"With the deadline for purchasing season tickets just five days away, we’re encouraging fans, who want to be part of this history-making season, to get tickets while they can."

Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Bombers website, by calling the team's ticket office at 204-784-7448, or by going to to Investors Group Field.

The Bombers kick off their 2013 CFL season on June 27 with the grand opening of the brand new stadium against the Montreal Alouettes.

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

That said, it won't be the first game at Investors Group. The defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts will actually be the first team to play there, taking on the Bombers in a pre-season game on June 12.
