Ottawa-Gatineau’s love affair with the CFL expansion Ottawa RedBlacks is continuing, as the team announced Wednesday this Saturday’s game against Saskatchewan has sold out.

Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group president Jeff Hunt.

"We're grateful and overwhelmed by the support we've received from fans in Ottawa/Gatineau," OSEG president Jeff Hunt said in a statement. "We sold over 17,000 season tickets and found a way to squeeze-in over 24,300 on opening night, which was incredible, and here we are once again in that same position. I can hardly wait for game day."

A limited number of premium and single seat tickets remain for the game.

Once again, OSEG is pushing public transit as the best way to get to the game. Every ticket to the game will mean free access to all OC Transpo and STO buses three hours before and after the game.

Organizations: OC Transpo

Geographic location: Ottawa

    Sorry Jordan but Ottawa has not had CFL since 1860. I have seen the club go down the toilet twice in my time. Everyone says that it was due to bad management and that this time it's different. We shall see. I do know that if the team doesn't make it the City will be in the hook, not the developers. And Jayme, Toronto has over 6 times the population of Ottawa and they are not all public servants, so they can easily support different sports.

    Barry Toronto is the most fickle fan base is North America yet people pain them as the words best sports market just take the Argos they have 3500 season tickets sold look at Toronto fc.Blue Jays or even the Raptors fan support is huge issue. As with Ottawa the city gets a bad rap we have had ourt fair share of real bad owners as for the Skyhawks they were near the top of the league in avg attendance.

    They'd better start winning soon as history has clearly shown Ottawa sports fans are really fickle and don't suffer losers kindly. Just heard that the Ottawa SkyHawk basketball franchise has just gone belly-up, so that writing is on the wall. If it's not played on ice then any sport in Ottawa is eventually going to find it tough going. Baseball, soccer and football all have new franchises. Will they all survive a couple of seasons? I hope I'm wrong, but I somehow doubt it.
