A dispute over responsibility for covering the cost of repairs and changes at Winnipeg's new football stadium has been resolved, putting the final cost of the project at $210 million.

BBB Stadium Inc., the non-profit organization that built the stadium, said in a statement that it has reached an agreement with Stuart Olson Dominion Construction, which built Investors Group Field. The Manitoba government will kick in another $1.5 million to cover the cost of additional improvements not included in the original design.

BBB Stadium said the additional money boosts the stadium's final cost.

The province, City of Winnipeg, University of Manitoba and the Winnipeg Football Club are the four stakeholders in BBB Stadium.

Insurance will cover $450,000 in spring runoff damage to some luxury boxes and a dressing room, although BBB Stadium will pay a deductible.
