Canadian Premier League statement on Ottawa Fury suspending operations

With the success of our inaugural season behind us, we are excited about future Canadian Premier League expansion opportunities and remain committed to bringing a CPL Club to Ottawa. Canada’s Capital City deserves a CPL team.  We believe Ottawa is a great soccer market that would only be enhanced by the opportunity to support a truly Canadian Tier One Men’s Professional Soccer Club. 

As it relates specifically to the Ottawa Fury (OSEG), we have always and continue to applaud their investment in professional soccer in Ottawa. We have had multiple discussions with Ottawa Fury ownership (OSEG) in the past and we remain open to further discussions. We look forward to bringing Canadian Premier League soccer to Ottawa with the right partners and structure that ensures the long-term success of professional soccer in Ottawa.
