The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are pleased to announce the top five finalists from the Small Business Showcase presented by Manitoba Chambers of Commerce. There was strong interest once again this year, and the Club thanks all businesses who entered for a chance to win a sponsorship package (value of $50,000) for the 2022 season.

“This year we received more than 80 entries, which made it difficult to narrow down to just five finalists,” said Wade Miller, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club. “We are thrilled to be able to help grow small businesses in Manitoba and witness the impact they are making in our community. Thank you to everyone who took the time to enter this year, and congratulations to the finalists.”

To win the grand prize, the finalists will be asked to submit a two-minute video pitch on why their company is the most deserving. The wining pitch will be selected by Manitoba Chambers of Commerce and Winnipeg Football Club executives. To be eligible, a business had to be a for-profit company whose principal place of business is located in Manitoba and has less than 50 full-time employees.

All eligible entries received during the submission period were judged on the following criteria: Involvement and value the business brings to the Manitoba community, sponsorship category is a good fit to partner with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, and completion of the application.
