Gary Bettman and the owners are having their winter meetings and one good thing to come out of the meeting is that the Winnipeg Jets will be hosting the Heritage Classic Outdoor game in either 2015 or 2016. The team is pushing for 2016 which will be the 5th anniversary of Jets 2.o
The outdoor game will be played at Investors Group Field which of course is the home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Allegedly the only snag in the Heritage Classic deal and 2016 is that the Blue Bombers are trying to put a bid in to host the Grey Cup in November of 2015.
The outdoor games are great, but is 6 games a year too much? We will soon find out after this years Stadium Series which concludes with the Heritage Classic being played in Vancouver.
How excited are you Jets fans that an outdoor game could be coming home in the near future?
