Consisting of three teams competing in three different leagues, the Ottawa Fury soccer club aims to incubate youth, male, and female players as they develop their skills for a professional stage. The women’s team kicks off the 2012 W-League season looking to trounce the Rochester Ravens at home, where the Fury have remained undefeated for more than three consecutive seasons. This nonpareil dominance has won the team eight division titles since its inception in 2000, a feat they hope to repeat yet again when the squad plays host to the W-League championship tournament, when all visiting teams will be expected to take off their cleats before they enter the stadium.
Likewise, the men’s squad—a member of the Premier Development League—seeks to reclaim the glory of its back-to-back division titles in 2009 and 2010, beginning with two bouts against divisional rivals the Boston Victory and the Vermont Voltage. As fans rally for the fleet-footed squad, vendors quell hunger with game-time eats, preventing the crowd from snatching errant soccer balls and scooping out their mashed-potato stuffing.
