Lansdowne Park to be Named TD Place

The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) and TD Bank Group today announced an agreement that will benefit millions of sports fans, concert goers and visitors to Lansdowne Park.

TD will be the official naming rights sponsor of the sporting/concert areas, including stadium and arena, to be called TD Place. The agreement also makes TD the official bank of OSEG’s three sports franchises, the Ottawa REDBLACKS (CFL), Ottawa Fury FC (NASL) and the Ottawa 67’s (OHL).

The agreement will pay OSEG an annual fee – probably in seven figures – that will also allow for a full-service TD banking centre at Lansdowne.

In addition to acquiring naming rights, TD will open a new state-of-the-art retail branch and install ATMs, offering customers and the community greater convenience to take advantage of all Lansdowne Park has to offer. In support of reducing its environmental footprint the branch will be built to LEED standards.

The refurbished stadium/arena combination on the grounds will be home to the Canadian Football League’s Ottawa Redblacks, the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s and the North American Soccer League franchise Ottawa Fury FC.

   
 

The Redblacks are set to return Ottawa to the CFL for the 2014 season, with their first home game coming in late July or early August.

The Fury will open its 2014 spring schedule at Carleton University while the construction project is completed, then switch over in the summer.

The 67’s, meanwhile, will return to a renovated Civic Centre for the 2014-15 season after two years at the Canadian Tire Centre in Kanata.

The new Lansdowne agreement also allows the Bank of Montreal to establish a smaller banking centre on the grounds.

With a combined arena/stadium seating capacity of 34,000, TD Place will be Ottawa’s largest sports and entertainment venue. TD will have significant branding throughout the complex, including the well-known TD Comfort Zone seating and other amenities to provide a unique fan experience. As part of TD’s commitment to creating opportunities to discover music, the venues will also open their doors for key events such as live concerts and family shows.

This agreement will seek to transform Lansdowne Park into a world-class destination – offering shopping, dining, sports, entertainment and parkland for the benefit of all Ottawa-area residents.
