Osborne Stadium was the home of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 1935 until 1952 and minor league baseball team Winnipeg Reo Rods. Located in a residential neighbourhood, the stadium required removal of existing houses in the area called West Broadway. It was located just west of the Manitoba Legislative Building (where the Great-West Life building currently stands) and could hold 7,800 fans. The stadium was named for the street it fronted, Osborne Street North. The Bombers moved to Winnipeg Stadium (later renamed Canad Inns Stadium) for the 1953 season and Osborne Stadium was later demolished.
