Bison football games are fun, family-friendly events. These games are a great opportunity to show your support for the University and enjoy some top-quality CIS football. Hear what some of our resident Bison superfans have to say:

“We have a great football program and now an amazing stadium in which to play. It has now become a regular part of my family’s fall evenings and afternoons for my wife Katie and our two daughters to take in Bison football games. It is a great family activity and the kids love high-fiving Billy the Bison. I love being a part of the University of Manitoba community and you really feel that sense of community at Bison sports events.”

“I have always been a sports enthusiast, and I love to support our Bison athletes. You get to sit outdoors on cool fall evenings (with no mosquitos), act a bit silly, cheer for your University and admire the work of these young athletes, and of course, Coach Dobie and his staff. I challenge all of our students, staff, alumni and football fans alike to experience a Bison game this year and you will be hooked! I hope to see you there. Go Herd!”
