WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers say their new stadium will not open this season.

The team says it will play all of this year's games at the old Canad Inns Stadium.

The Bombers were already planning on playing the first few months there because of delays caused by wind and other weather at the construction site of Investors Group Field.

But they had been saying they would get into their new home in September and they now admit that won't happen.

They say accelerating work "beyond what is reasonable and safe" would only create further delays.
