*****  Update to this Post:  Checkout the latest on Ottawa’s CFL Team, The REDBLACKS  ********

The sights and sounds of the CFL at Lansdowne Park are Nearing.

The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group will soon announce Ottawa’s CFL team name, expected to be named the Ottawa RedBlacks. This is not official yet!

Fans will soon be able to get their own stake in the franchise, with the ability to buy season tickets. The official ticket launch will probably in early June. That is when the season tickets will be marketed to the general public.

Former season ticket holders can reserve their old seats, and new fans can secure a Priority Registration Number (PRN) for seats for $25 per seat. Visit www.Ottawa67s.com or call 613-599-3267 to reserve by phone.

Getting a PRN is a good way for fans to ensure they wind up with good seats. Eventually, fans will be able to choose where they sit.

The PRN program that will be launched will be for season tickets. This creates an orderly process to selling the CFL tickets. Fans won’t be able to start picking their seats until September. The OSEG is currently working on building a preview centre where fans can see and view the specific locations and then make a choice.

The new Ottawa CFL Football team have hired a GM- Marcel Desjardins – and two other football employees – Jeremy Snyder and Miles Gorrell – and will choose up to four players in the May 6 CFL Draft, only able to pick from a group of Canadian born (with one more year of college eligibility) from the NCAA ranks.

    Should have been the Bytowne colonels, Redblacks? Terrible

  • jim logan

    Love the CFL, but have to admit its going to take a while to accept the name, the REDBLACKS – quite unimaginative and sorry, doesn’t strike a positive cord to me, other than starting with an R – I have no idea of how it ties into the city’s history other than the color scheme of past sports teams here. I believe jersey sales will be low.

  • scott

    Ignore the naysayers. Go with the RedBlacks. The day after the team’s first win it will be everybody’s favourite name.

  • Kobe

    AWESOME LOGO!!!

    The name I disliked previously but once you understand the name (logging history in the city of Otttawa) and the overall brand, it was clearly the best choice.

    Here we go REDBLACKS here we go

  • Kyle

    Red….Blacks…..really? This is the best you can do?

    I will still go to the game but don’t expect me to buy jersey, I would be too embarassed to wear it.

  • Norm

    p.s. supposedly the name was copied from an American sports team.[Watertown]

  • Norm

    The January Ottawa Sun poll on this name had an 80% disapproval. Get with it ! Can anyone even yell”Go Red Blacks Go” ? It’s hard to annunciate. It’s also racist ! What’s the mascot going to look like -red front ,black back ? Sad for kids.

  • Linda Burke

    I have been a CFL FAN FOR ALMOST 40YRS. I LIVE IN Ottawa, and was looking forward to the new CFL team.. but really REDBLACKS. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO DECIDED ON
    THIS RIDICULOUS NAME. IT DOESNT SHOUT OUT FOOTBALL PLAYERS… COME ON
    REALLY, I DON’T THINK THE PUBLIC WAS ABLE TO VOTE ON THIS, MUST BE AN INSIDE
    JOB… I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO BUYING SEASON TICKETS, BUT NOT TO A TEAM
    THAT IS CALLED REDBLACKS…. PITIFUL

    Name suggestion for CFL Team:

    Ottawa ONSLAUGHT

  • dhems

    I have many great memories of watching football at Lansdowne Park in the 80s and 90s – I was really looking forward to the renovations and the return of CFL football…. but, if the team comes back as the ‘RedBlacks’ you will lose me as a fan of the team and ticket buyer. It is a childish name that means nothing to the City of Ottawa and it’s history. I urge you to do better – don’t start off the franchise with a bad feelings before you even have a player or play a game. Pick a name that has meaning to the people of Ottawa, a name that inspires some pride and not a name that is open to ridicule.

    The Redblack, surely we can do better than that?! Any of the other options: Raftsmen, Voyageurs, or Rush are infinitely more creative and sexy and have the added historic-reference value. Don’t know where Redblacks comes from but it sounds like something a 6-year old would come up with. No-one I have spoken to likes the Redblacks, but we are confident that a more intelllgien choice will be made.
