SMR Interview Series: Richie Ryan, The Captain

You’ve seen them on the pitch playing for Ottawa. We’ve cheered them on together in the stands. We want you to know what they’re about. Where they’re from, where they’ve been. What shapes them as a player. As a person. Everyone has a story and we want to tell theirs. I’ve had the opportunity to […]

Rioter in Brazil: On the eve of the opening match

I’ve been a few days in Brazil. It is starting to feel like the World Cup. I arrived in São Paulo in the middle of a transit strike. A normal chaotic drive through the downtown core turned into a two-hour crawl from the airport. Advertising from the World Cup sponsors (you’ll know who they are […]

Ottawa's Team, Our Team

Voyageurs Cup is coming to Ottawa

Our hangovers are gone. Our voices are back. Professional soccer is here and here to stay. Ottawa Fury’s first match was full of nervous intensity.

The Oath of a Football Fanatic

  On the eve of Ottawa Fury’s first ever home match, the world lost one of its most valuable authors: Gabriel García Márquez, a fanatic of his Barranquilla Junior, seven times champions of Colombia’s Primera A.
