Young players are patiently nurtured and then given opportunities, whether in Spain, or abroad. The club also has an impressive track record of discovering and integrating world class talent from elsewhere in Europe and overseas. The ability to identify and then model an “Atleti” type player, is what supporters in Ottawa should be most excited about over the coming years.

Atlético Ottawa History
From 2014 through 2019, Ottawa Fury FC participated in soccer leagues headquartered in the United States, the most recent of which being the USL Championship. As a result of the formation of the domestic Canadian Premier League, the sanctioning concerns that were involved with competing in the United States led to the dissolution of the Fury after the conclusion of the 2019 season.
As a result, the city of Ottawa did not have a professional soccer team going into the 2020 season. On January 29, 2020, it was reported that the Canadian Premier League has granted the first expansion franchise to the city of Ottawa. The team will be owned by the Spanish club Atlético Madrid, and local investor Jeff Hunt will serve as a strategic partner. Atlético Ottawa was the name given to the team when it first competed in the Canadian Premier League in the year 2020.
On February 11, 2020, the club’s identity, including its name, crest, and colors, was revealed to the public for the first time. The day has been officially designated as “Atlético Ottawa Day” by the mayor of Ottawa, Jim Watson. It was revealed that Mista would serve as the club’s first head coach as well as the general manager.
Atlético Ottawa games, both at home and on the road, have been aired on OneSoccer and in radio format on TSN 1200 since the start of the club’s inaugural season. In the immediate aftermath of the opening kickoff of Atlético Ottawa’s first home game, which took place on August 14, 2021.
Because of the epidemic, Atlético Ottawa played all of their games throughout the 2020 season and the first part of the 2021 season at neutral-site stadiums. On August 14, 2021, they played their first game at their home stadium. At the game between Ottawa and the HFX Wanderers, which Ottawa won 2–1, there were over 12,000 fans present.
Atletico Ottawa Crest
The identity of the club is derived from that of its parent club, which is called Atlético Madrid. The blue silhouette of the Peace Tower, which can be found on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, is included on the crest. Underneath are horizontal strips of red and white, which call to mind both the crest of Atlético Madrid and the flag of Canada. A maple leaf may be found at the bottom of the crest. The canoe paddle from the coat of arms of Ottawa, which is crossed by two arrows, is used as an alternate logo for the club, and it is accompanied by the monogram “AO.”
The team’s colors are red, white, and blue, much like those of Atlético Madrid (the club refers to these colors as “federal red,” “blanc d’Ottawa,” and “Rideau blue,” respectively).
