Atletico Ottawa To Reveal Home Kit Next Week
Canadian Premier League expansion side Atletico Ottawa will be revealing the club’s inaugural home kit this Thursday, May 28, 2020 during a livestream event hosted on Facebook.
The official unveiling will begin at 7:00PM EST. Interested fans will be able to watch history unfold on the club’s official Facebook page, though at the moment it’s not known how many club players – if any – will be participating in the stream due to social distancing rules.
The league’s first-ever expansion team has signed fourteen players so far, which includes a split of domestic talent like Ben Fisk, Brandon John, and Kunle Dada-Luke, along with a string of international signings like Vashon Neufville, Tevon Shaw, and Victor Martinez.
Had the COVID-19 pandemic not paused the season, Atletico Ottawa would have been more than a month into its inaugural campaign, and the home kit would have already been a known factor. The founding clubs all revealed their home kits in February.
Club President Jeff Hunt recently announced he was parting ways with OSEG, which means that Atletico Ottawa will now have all of the veteran entrepreneur’s attention.
Major League Soccer has opted have a single locale host its modified season, and the Canadian Premier League appears to be following suit: the league is currently evaluating which province could best host a modified 2-3 month long season, with the league having already revealed its ‘return to training’ protocols to players and club staff.
Whatever happens, Atletico Ottawa fans will finally be able to lock eyes on the full kit of the expansion side next week, with the club expected to begin taking purchase orders for the home kits as well. With the club’s official look falling in line with Atletico branding, a red, white, and blue design is the expected outcome.
