If you coach a youth sports team ages 8 through 17, you can apply for free tickets to take your team to a Winnipeg Jets or Blue Bombers home game through Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries’ Flight Deck program. Winning teams are randomly drawn from all applicants received to date, and the earlier you apply in a Bombers or Jets season, the better the chance of your team being drawn. Full eligibility requirements and online application forms can be found below.
