NFL Making a Stop in Winnipeg

NFL fans in Winnipeg are in for a treat.

A pre-season game between the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay Packers will be played at IG Field — home of the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers — in the third week of the exhibition schedule on Aug. 22.

The Blue Bombers and On Ice Entertainment Ltd. held a news conference Wednesday to confirm the game that will be played as a Raiders home game.

Also in the mix was the city of Regina, but the plan fell through.

The Raiders are scheduled to move their team to Las Vegas next year.

Tickets for the exhibition game will range from $75 to $340, plus taxes and fees.
