Lansdowne Park – The Jewel of Stadiums within the CFL

Ottawa’s redeveloped Lansdowne Park will set a new standard for sports facilities around the world, according to the commissioner of the Canadian Football League.

TD Place, the home of the CFL’s expansion Ottawa RedBlacks and the heart of the Lansdowne redevelopment, is part of a recent stadium “renaissance” that has seen facilities being renovated or new parks being built across the league, including in B.C., Winnipeg and Hamilton.

Lansdowne Park project, has a blend of residential condo and townhomes, sports, parkland, 350,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space.

The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, the owners of the RedBlacks and the organization behind the new Lansdowne redevelopment, have put together a strong plan that convinced the league to give CFL football another chance in the capital.

The CFL also guaranteed Ottawa would get to host a Grey Cup game within the team’s first four seasons.


The CFL has recently signed a new four-year television deal with TSN worth $40 million a season, a dramatic increase from the previous deal that brought in $15 million per season.

But the league also faces some stiff challenges. The CFL’s labour agreement with its players expires at the end of May, and the two sides have yet to find common ground on a revenue-sharing model in a new deal.
