About the Ottawa REDBLACKS
The Ottawa REDBLACKS are a CFL expansion team, owned by the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group - a partnership of five Ottawa business and community leaders. The partners; Roger Greenberg, John Ruddy, Jeff Hunt, William Shenkman and John Pugh, each own successful business enterprises and are well-known in Ottawa for distinguished community service. The League conditionally awarded a franchise to OSEG in March of 2008. In June 2010, Ottawa City Council voted to partner with OSEG and proceed with the revitalization of Lansdowne Park, which will serve as the home of REDBLACKS. Stadium construction at Lansdowne is ongoing and the REDBLACKS will commence play in the 2014 season. More information on the Lansdowne Partnership can be found on the City of Ottawa website.
