Winnipeg Blue Bombers Appearance Requests

Blue Bombers Players

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers take pride in being an integral part of the community. As part of our community outreach program, our players, mascots, and cheer team members can be made available for appearances with non-profit organizations and for school functions. For a small appearance, they can also attend corporate functions based on availability.

The following guidelines will assist you with your appearance request:

  • Player appearance requests must be received in writing at least 3 weeks prior to the event date.
  • Appearances cannot be accommodated during training camp or during the playoffs.
  • During the regular season, active players are not available 48 hours prior to a game.
  • Appearance requests during the off-season are limited due to the availability of players residing in Winnipeg.

Payment Criteria

Non-profit organization/school appearance/charity function = no charge (upon approval of status)
Corporate function = $200 per hour* (Plus travel time if the appearance is in rural Manitoba).
Discount rate may apply for corporate sponsors/partners of the team.

*Please note, rates may be higher for marquee players. If your request is approved, you will be contacted by a representative from the Blue Bombers prior to the event to make arrangements. Please note, due to the number of requests received by the Blue Bombers, the review process can be lengthy. Please be patient.


Blue Bombers Cheer & Dance Team

Members of our Blue Bomber Cheer & Dance Team are available for appearances at charitable, non-profit, community, educational and corporate events throughout Manitoba from May until November.


All appearance requests must be submitted in writing to the WFC no less than 4 weeks prior to your event. Please ensure roles for the cheer team are clearly defined, including instructions for parking, (private) change area and event day contact information. Due to the high volume of requests, appearances are not guaranteed. Registered charities and non-profit organizations with causes dedicated to children, families, health & wellness and education will receive priority. Members of the Cheer & Dance Team will make appearances at corporate and private events for a fee, which will be determined by the WFC based on the number of team members, location of event and duration.


Buzz & Boomer

Since hatching in the spring of 1984, Winnipeg Blue Bomber mascots Buzz & Boomer have been firmly nestled in the hearts of Bomber fans. They are undoubtedly the province’s most recognized and beloved feathered ambassadors.

The dynamic duo never fails to entertain fans with their slapstick comedy routines and outrageous stunts during Blue Bomber home games. The pair has also been known to take flight to cheer on the team for road games. Buzz, with his dark sunglasses and “Rebel Without A Cause” attitude, is quite the class clown. Boomer, the taller of the two, is the strong and silent type who relies on cool sophistication, rugged good looks, and timid charm to make his mark with fans. Being the popular pair they are, their work is never done! Instead of heading south for the winter, Buzz & Boomer stay in town year-round and make countless appearances across Manitoba on behalf of the Football Club.
