The Bisons are back!

New ticket and entry requirements part of the return to play

September 7, 2021 — 

If you are looking for ways to celebrate the return to campus, get your tickets and cheer extra loud for the Bisons as they return to Canada West competition later this week.

After last season’s cancellation, the ‘Herd’ is excited to be back in action and looking forward seeing fans in the stands, wearing their brown and gold and showing their UM pride.

The Bisons’ schedule, modified in the interest of the safety of student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans, will see most teams with fewer and more regionally based contests.

Women’s soccer kicks off the season on Friday, Sept. 10 and 11 against the Regina Cougars, followed by the Duckworth Challenge match against UWinnipeg on Sept. 23 at the West turf fields.

The Bisons football season opens with the Homecoming game on Sept. 25 at IG Field. This game will be free for UM students, staff and alumni. Visit the Bisons Homecoming game page for applicable promotional codes.

Be a part of the Homecoming half-time show

Join the fun of Homecoming and be part of the halftime spectacular. Volunteer dancers are needed to learn and perform a flash mob dance choreographed to one of Winnipeg hottest new bands – playing live at the game! Sign-up before Sept. 14, email Brenda Gorlick at bgorlick [at] gmail [dot] com


New COVID-19 protocols for Bisons games

With the health and safety of everyone being top priority, there will be some changes to game entry procedures. While UM COVID-19 protocols will be followed, the Bisons will also implement public health restrictions for ticketed sporting events beginning on September 10:

  • Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination status and government-issued identification is required at entry for spectators 12 years of age and older (Children 11 years and younger must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult).  
  • Masks must be worn indoors at all times, and outdoors when physical distancing is not possible.
  • Only mobile tickets will be used for entry to facilities


Tickets are now on sale with all information available at gobisons[dot]ca.

UM students have access to all Bisons regular season home games through the Sport and Rec fee but will have to download tickets to show at the gate.
