Winnipeg Blue Bombers History
What began as the Winnipeg Rugby
Football Club in 1879 was transformed into the Winnipeg Winnipegs in 1930, and from there the team continued to grow in importance
around the local sports scene. The team was not known as the Blue Bombers until 1936, and they quickly showed that they had
what it takes to be a champion, going to the Grey Cup a record 21 times from 1935 to 1990. With 10 Grey Cup wins in their
club's illustrious history, the Blue Bombers are one of the winningest franchises in the CFL, and always seem to be in the
mix at the end of the season. With legends like nine-time All-Star Milt Stegall, quarterback Dieter Brock, Grey Cup-winning
quarterback Tom Clements and Hall-of-Famer and former Winnipeg captain Herb Gray, the Blue Bombers and their fans have a history
and pride unlike any other team in the league.
Winnipeg Blue Bombers Trivia
How did the Winnipeg Blue
Bombers get their nickname?
Originally called the Winnipeg Winnipegs, a sports writer referred to the Winnipegs as the
"Blue Bombers" in 1936 as they were in the process of being the most dominant team in the league. The term was a twist on
the colors of the team and the nickname of legendary boxer Joe Louis, who was nicknamed the "Brown Bomber."
