Ottawa stadium project moves forward

TAGS:  canada, nasl


[NASL] The North America Soccer League has approved the New York Cosmos to begin play on Long Island in 2013, and it moved one step close to getting a team in Ottawa in 2014 as the city council in the Canadian capital gave the green light for  a partnership with the Ottawa Sports & Entertainment Group for the construction of the new Lansdowne Park.

The 21-3 vote in favor of the partnership paves the way for Ottawa’s membership in the Canadian Football League and the Ontario Hockey League as well as the NASL. The project remains on target for the stadium and rink to be completed for the 2014 NASL and CFL seasons and the start of the 2014-15 OHL season.
Said NASL Commissioner David Downs in a statement: “We welcome the news today that the City Council has given its final approval for the stadium project and that our Ottawa team will soon have its permanent home in Lansdowne Park.  We’re looking forward to Ottawa’s on-field contribution to the NASL in 2014 and are confident that the city’s soccer fans will support the club in style.”
