Winnipeg’s Stadium Headed To Court

Users of Investors Group Field in Winnipeg have launched a lawsuit to try and recover costs related to deficiencies in the newly constructed stadium.

The Winnipeg Football Club today issued the following in response to the Statement of Claim filed in Court of Queen’s Bench by Triple B Stadium Inc., the owner of Investors Group Field.

Wade Miller, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club said the organization fully supports Triple B and its legal action against Raymond S.C. Wan Architect Inc. and Stuart Olson Construction Ltd.

“While we are extremely disappointed that we have had to deal with continuous and ongoing issues since we became the primary tenant in 2013,” said Miller, “we believe today is an important step forward in attempting to have them resolved.”

Miller added that, according to the Statement of Claim, the legal action is based on ongoing water infiltration and other issues related to the building design and construction of the stadium.

“The Club will work closely with Triple B to ensure that any potential remediation work will not impact in any way on scheduled events, games, or concerts at Investors Group Field,” said Miller.

The Winnipeg Football Club will make no further comment on the ongoing legal process while it is before the courts.
