Last year Winnipeg got their new stadium, next year they are getting the Grey Cup.

Mark Cohon, Commissioner of the CFL, officially announced today the 103rd Grey Cup will be played at Investors Group Field in 2015.

"What better way to showcase our modern league than to bring our biggest game to stunning Investors Group Field, one of the new stadiums that are home to today's CFL?" said Cohon. "And I can't think of a better way to celebrate Canada than to bring our fans together from across the country, not just to mark one of our grandest traditions, but to celebrate what is a very bright future, in one of Canadian football's proudest homes."

The game will be played on November 29, 2015.

Manitoba's capital last hosted the big game in 2006 when the B.C. Lions defeated the Montreal Alouettes 25-14.

This season's Grey Cup will be held at BC Place.
