The Ottawa Redblacks are Ottawa’s newest Canadian Football League (CFL) team.
The Ottawa Renegades were Ottawa’s Canadian Football League (CFL) team up until the end of the 2005 season. It has been many years since Ottawa has had their own CFL team so there are a lot of very excited people that we have a CFL team again!!
If you are looking for a fun night out then you may want to attend one of the RedBlacks’ home games. Football is fun to watch and the fans really get into it.
