The Ottawa Renegades were Ottawa's Canadian Football League (CFL) team. As of April 2006, the CFL announced that the Renegades will not participate in the 2006 season. The League is suspending the operations of the franchise while the search for new ownership continues.
For information purposes, we have left our Renegades page as is so that we may update it when we get our team back in Ottawa! We are remaining hopeful that we will have a CFL team again in the future.

game is fun to watch and the fans really get into it.
