TD Place Stadium opened as Lansdowne Park in 1908 and has been the home of the CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks since 2014. The stadium currently seats 24,000.
TD Place Stadium began its life as a 10,000-seat grandstand but has undergone several renovations and expansions since then to be transformed into a 24,000-seat stadium. The first expansion to the stadium took place in 1920 when a grandstand was added to the south side. A few decades later an upper deck was added in the 1970s. Most recently, a redevelopment, which began in 2010, added retail space, 250 housing units, and an urban park near the stadium.
Over the years, TD Place Stadium has been the site of many notable events. The stadium has hosted five Grey Cup games since opening and was the site of five soccer matches during the 1976 Summer Olympics. The venue also hosted games in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup. Finally, it was announced recently that TD Place Stadium would host an outdoor game between the NHL’s Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens on December 16, 2017.
