The Winnipeg Blue Bombers want every single fan to feel like an important part of the crowd. Now, fans from the Deaf Community will feel more connected than ever before. At each home game, fans from the Deaf Community are provided with Closed Captioning, allowing them to take in the “sounds” of the game.
An initiative endorsed by the Manitoba Deaf Association, fans taking advantage of the Closed Captioning service will enjoy a better experience as all Closed Captioning will now be available on handheld devices instead of on the stadium video boards. Fans using the Closed Captioning service can access it via the Blue Bomber website on their own personal smartphone through their web broswer using the link below.
Fans wishing to borrow a tablet to access closed captioning via the Blue Bomber App must contact Fan Services at least two business days before any home game. Fan Services can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 204-784-7420.
