RNation Victorious In Virtual Home Opener

Thank you RNation for joining us for our very first Virtual Home Opener presented by TD. A night filled with special guests and surprises. The closest thing to a game day at TD Place. 500 strong in the private Forever RNation Season Seat Member Zoom and countless more following along on our social channels. Like a game at TD Place this virtual one started with a passionate speech from Head Coach Paul LaPolice followed by a stirring rendition of the National Anthem by Ottawa artist JW Jones. Then, quarter by quarter, host Chris Hofley alongside a familiar face – AJ Jakubec – talked to players and coaches. We even had the world famous REDBLACKS Cheer Team stop by for a killer halftime performance. Wrapping up the night, we were super proud to keep a tradition alive – our wood cookie ceremony, but virtually. We honoured Dr Vera Etches as our RNation Everyday Hero. What an unbelievable night. Not quite live football at TD Place, but as close as it gets for now. Here are some highlights:
