Canada’s sporty capital opens new venue

By Allan Lynch

Few people realize what a sporty city Canada’s capital is. The landscape of Ottawa is criss-crossed by dedicated bike lanes. In winter citizens commute to work by skating on the frozen Rideau Canal.

Ottawa is home to professional hockey, football and soccer teams. To accommodate the Ottawa Redblacks, the newest team to play in the Canadian Football League, and the Ottawa Fury FC soccer club, private developers have opened TD Place at Lansdowne. TD Place encompasses a 24,000-seat outdoor stadium and refurbished 10,000-seat indoor arena. It is part of 40-acre, canal-side development that includes shopping, restaurants, entertainment district and urban park.

They are open to working with private groups. Mike Cerha, TD Place’s Event Marketing and Booking Manager can be reached at [email protected].

To discuss events in Ottawa in general contact Darrell Cox, Manager of Major Events with Ottawa Tourism at [email protected].
