Ottawa to Join NASL

June 20, 2011 (Ottawa, ON.): The North American Soccer League (NASL) today announced that Ottawa, Ontario has been awarded an expansion team. The new team will be owned by the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) and play home games at Lansdowne Park. The club will commence League play upon the completion of a major stadium reconstruction project which is expected to commence later this year. The North American Soccer League is a Division II mens outdoor professional soccer league with teams based in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.

We welcome Ottawa to the NASL, said League Commissioner David Downs. As we continue to expand and collectively grow professional soccer in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean, Ottawa is a natural market with a vibrant business community, large soccer fan base and an exceptional ownership group.

OSEG partner John Pugh, who is also the CEO and Owner of the Ottawa Fury Soccer Club, has been named President of the new NASL franchise. Pugh says hes committed to building a successful team on and off the field: "This will be, by far, the highest calibre of soccer well have seen in Ottawa since the 2007 FIFA Mens U-20 World Cup, said Pugh. We are committed to fielding a competitive team from the get-go, providing a lively, entertaining game day experience for families and establishing strong ties with all soccer players and fans across the region. Its a privilege to have this opportunity.

OSEG is offering Ottawa soccer fans an opportunity to reserve the right to purchase season tickets for their NASL team before they become available to the public at large. A limited number of priority reservation numbers (PRNs) are now available for a fully-refundable $25 deposit or free for current season ticket holders for the Ottawa Fury and Ottawa 67s and, PRN holders for Ottawas new CFL football franchise.

Ottawa's Best Kept Soccer Secret

The Ottawa Fury Soccer Club offers the highest level of men's soccer available in the Ottawa area, and it's only going to get better! In 2005, the Fury first formed a team in the USL Premier Development League, the top U23 men's league in North America and a development ground for players aspiring to play in the professional ranks. In their inaugural season, this terrific startup finished just out of a playoff spot - not bad in a league of over sixty teams!
