OTTAWA — A game nine years in the making is set to take place under the brand new TD Place Stadium lights and the REDBLACKS are eager to put on a show.

There is a buzz in the City of Ottawa as the REDBLACKS host the Toronto Argonauts in what will be the first ever game at their new stadium on the same site as the old Frank Clair Stadium.

Leading the REDBLACKS in their historic opener is Henry Burris who quarterbacks a club looking to earn their first ever win in the most perfect of opportunities.

“I can just imagine how emotional and how much energy is going to be in this stadium and this entire city,” Burris said. “I know this fanbase has waited since 2005 to have a true home game and a true home stadium. It’s an honour to be here and able to be part of this team to break ground as far as getting this organization and city back into football.”
