It also marks the closing meeting of a home and home between the two clubs.
“When you have a first game at home, you definitely want to come out and win that game,” Stamps head coach Dave Dickenson said. “It’s challenging anyway, but you have to protect your home turf. They’ll probably feed off of that.”

This is the rubber match between the Stamps and Blue Bombers with each side having won in 2019: Calgary last week and Winnipeg back in Week 9.
“Show up, play our best and hopefully steal one,” Dickenson offered of his team’s mentality going into the key tilt.
A win Friday would help the Stamps to clinch at least second place in the West Division, and coupled with a Saskatchewan loss in Edmonton Saturday, would mean Calgary secures first in the West for a fourth straight campaign.
Calgary’s regular-season draws to a close next Saturday in Vancouver against the B.C. Lions.
