Ottawa Fury FC is a Canadian professional soccer team based in Ottawa, Ontario. Founded in 2011, the team made its debut in the North American Soccer League in 2014.[1] On February 26, 2013, the name Ottawa Fury FC was officially unveiled.[2]

The franchise currently plays at TD Place Stadium in Lansdowne Park.[3] The Fury's first game in TD Place Stadium was on July 20, 2014 against the New York Cosmos.[4][5] During the spring 2014 season, the Fury played at Keith Harris Stadium on Carleton University's campus, until the completion of TD Place.

History

On June 20, 2011 NASL announced that an Ottawa expansion team would join the league once the stadium is ready in 2014.[6] The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) was named as the ownership group of the club.[7] The team replaced Ottawa Fury SC, of the USL PDL, in 2014. The women's W League team folded after the 2014 season but the other level programs continue.

Colours

In the late 2013, over 1,500 fans took part in a campaign to help pick the designs for the kits. Working closely with the kit manufacturer, the Club presented fans with three kit design options to vote on and submit their feedback, and the final kit designs reflect the preferences expressed by the Fury FC fan base. On March 29, 2014 the Ottawa Fury FC unveiled their home and away game kits that the club was to wear during its inaugural North American Soccer League (NASL) season. The home and away kits both feature the traditional colours of Ottawa sport: red and black. The home kit is predominantly black and the away kit is predominantly white.[8]

Kit manufacturers and shirt sponsors

The inaugural Ottawa Fury FC home and away kits are manufactured by Admiral Sportswear.

Stadium

The club play their home games at TD Place Stadium in Lansdowne Park. Due to the then on-going construction at TD Place, the club reached an agreement with Carleton University to stage its 2014 North American Soccer League (NASL) spring season games at Keith Harris Stadium on the Carleton University campus until the construction finished. The agreement with Carleton University allowed the Fury to play all five home games of the ten-game 2014 NASL spring season at Carleton.[9]
