On Saturday, August 17th the Ottawa REDBLACKS celebrate diversity and inclusion at their Pride Game. At the game there will be a gender neutral washroom and the coin toss will be performed by the Grand Marshall of the Pride Parade. We have a lot in store for the game but here are the Top 5 reasons you need to be here!

1. Rainbow Everything

At the game you can expect to see rainbows everywhere! We’ll be handing out rainbow thundersticks to the first 3,000 fans in the building. We will also have the massive Pride flag courtesy of Capital Pride, rainbow helmet stickers and we encourage all of you to come dressed up in your rainbow gear as well!

2. Pride Wall

Our friends from TD Bank will have a special wall set up on the concourse where fans are encouraged to come and write messages that celebrate diversity and inclusion. For every message written on the wall, TD will be donating funds to five different local LGBTQ2+ partners.

3. The WOW Item of the Game

We hope that you have a sweet tooth because the WOW Item of the Game will be the Belly Buster Two Pound Ice Cream Sandwich.

What does that all entail you ask?! Belly Buster Chocolate Chip Cookies, Butterscotch Ripple, Mint Chocolate, Madagascar Vanilla and Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream.

You can get your very own for only sandwich for only $12 at the Smoking Pig on the South Main Concourse and the Glebe Grill on the North Upper Concourse.

On top of that!

We are bringing back some of the favourite WOW Items from the first half of the season (in smaller sizes). You can munch on a Jumbo Mac and Cheese Dog, Loaded Pigskin Potatoes and our House Made Sausage Burger.
