The REDBLACKS Home Opener Kicks Off Tonight

It's been years in the waiting, but it's finally here.

The Ottawa REDBLACKS kick off at the brand new TD Place Stadium tonight at 7:00 p.m.

It's a sold out crowd. More than 24,000 fans are expected to watch the REDBLACKS take on the Toronto Argonauts.

The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group is reminding football fans that there will be no parking at Lansdowne, but say there are plenty of options for getting to the game.

OC Transpo service is free with a gameday ticket for three hours both before and after the game and shuttle service is free with a ticket.

The shuttles leave from four nearby parking lots and OC Tranpspo has trips from select park and rides.

A tailgate party will begin outside the Aberdeen Pavillion at 4:00 p.m., featuring the music of The Trews, before the game begins.

If you're not among the thousands attending in person, the game will be broadcast live on TSN 1200, with the pre-game show starting at 5:30 p.m., and full coverage of the game starting at 7:00 p.m.
