Club officials say the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will raise ticket prices by five to 10 per cent to help pay for their new home.

The Canadian Football League team released part of its business plan today to raise an extra four (m)-million dollars a year over the next 44 years to help pay for the new stadium.

Chairman Bill Watchorn didn't release the full business plan, only giving reporters a point-form summary.

The Bombers are on the hook for 85-million dollars of the 190-million dollar stadium that is already under construction at the University of Manitoba.

The building will have 33-thousand seats and is expected to be open for the 2012 season. (The Canadian Press)
