MLS Soccer in Ottawa

  • In 2008 Eugene Melnyk officially announced his plan to to bring a Major League Soccer (MLS) team to Ottawa. Ottawa was competing with eight other North American cities for an expansion franchise in 2011. The plan included a 30,000-seat, $100-million stadium to be built near Scotiabank Place. Unfortunately Ottawa City Council chose to pursue stadium redevelopment at Lansdowne Park, rather than support a stadium in Kanata. As a result, Mr. Melnyk’s MLS project is on hold for now.
