Statement regarding security policies

The Winnipeg Football Club would like to clarify security policies regarding artificial noisemakers at Winnipeg Blue Bomber games this season:

“After listening to our fans, we would like to inform everyone that over the counter purchased cowbells will be permitted at home games this season, but homemade noisemakers such as empty paint cans with rocks inside or any other device that may be deemed unsafe by our security staff will not be permitted. It was never our intention to diminish the fan experience, and we do encourage fans to bring thunder sticks, clappers and plastic horns powered by human voice, however, all of which will be at the sole discretion of the football club,” said Vice-President and COO Jim Bell.
