Yeah, there are only 750,000 in the whole metropolitan area. The thread title says 30,000 seats, but it's a little off. The real capacity will be 33,422 with the ability to expand to 40,000 seats. The Bombers sold out their last 2 home games in 29,553 seat CanadInns Stadium, so it looks likely that this new stadium will sell out as well. Perhaps, they may even have to reconfigure the stadium at the 40,000 seat capacity. Would be nice!

I believe 'adeaide' has it right. That 1st render is the old one. The stadium they are building will look close to the 2nd render he posted.

Nope, not really. I contacted the 'Blue and Gold Consortium' about that design a few years back (2007) and then it was exactly what adeaide has shown (apart from the arches being gold in the begining and seats blue), while later it was made less spectacular with the arches standing vertically instead of meeting one another in the central point.
So unless something exceptional happenned (because designs are usually made less impressive when coming to the real model from the initial vision), that is the old one.

But the catch is - sorry for not being precise - that the older one adeaide presented is indeed older. Both are out of date. Here is the current vision that derives from the above rendering, but is more 'realistic' (cheaper for the most part):

It's not important at this point, but your response to his question insinuated that post #40 was the current (new) design when it's not. As I mentioned (and you have since validated with the above render) the current design looks more like the 2nd one he posted. He was correct to say that the render below is the old design:

IDK. I've asked the question before regarding the exact location of the construction site.

But why is it hard to believe that a 33k stadium can be built on a college campus? Many Big 10 schools have stadiums over 70k on their campus, Michigan has over 100k, Penn State 85k, etc.

I looked on Google Maps, and the University of Manitoba campus looks pretty tight.

But if the University of Minnesota could fit the TCF Bank Stadium on its campus, I guess the University of Manitoba could accomplish the same thing.

A 2km by 1km campus is pretty tight? University land extends from Pembina highway to the Red River. Though I'm not a fan of putting up a large stadium, they have plenty of space for new construction.

With the type of harsh winters Winnipeg can get, it looks tough for them to get this finished in 9 months....their Project Manager says it is one time...anyone have any insight on this?

I'm very excited about this one. This is exactly the type of design that will help the CFL and the Bombers prosper. It looks like a big league stadium even though it has only 33,422 seats. I would have guessed about 46,000 if I didn't know already.

The province (mostly), the city (a little bit) and the team. That is why it is on the U of Manitoba campus.
