The game will be held at the newly-named TD Place field a week after the Fury open their fall season in Edmonton July 13, which is the same day the FIFA World Cup ends in Brazil. 

The fall season for the 10-team NASL, one level below Major League Soccer (MLS), runs until November. Ottawa’s home games will be held on Saturdays and Sundays, with the exception of a Wednesday night game Oct. 1.

   
 

It follows the nine-game spring season, when the Fury will play five games at Carleton University’s Keith Harris Stadium starting April 19.

The winners of the spring and fall seasons play for the Soccer Bowl title in November.

The Fury’s news release on their schedule does include the advisory “the home schedule dates of Ottawa Fury FC are still to be confirmed and fans are reminded that all game dates and kickoff times are subject to change.”
