The TD Place Stadium is both a new and classic stadium rolled into one. The stadium, located at Lansdowne Park, on the southern edge of The Glebe neighbourhood by the Rideau Canal is home to the newly established Ottawa Redblacks. The playing field was first cleared in the 19870s and a small grandstand was built in the 1920s until it was replaced in 1960. The stadium was initially rebuilt in 2008.

Third time’s the charm. The Redblacks are the third CFL team play in the city of Ottawa following the Ottawa Rough Riders from 1876 and the Renegades in 2002. The Redblacks begun CFL play in 2014 and acquired former Grey Cup MVP and two-time Most Oustanding Player of the Year Henry Burris to captain the offense though they finished deadlast at 2-16.
In 2015, they improved significantly going 16-2, finishing first in the East and making it to their first Grey Cup appearance in a losing effort.
