Ottawa Aces forced to relocate to the UK in sensational move

Ottawa Aces have given an important update to their fans.

“Friends and supporters, as we continue to navigate COVID-19 and the considerable affect it has on all of our lives, we want to share an update on the Ottawa Aces. It is with heavy hearts we must announce our club will be forced to permanently relocate back to England, and a more stable operating environment. In the coming weeks, our new permanent location in England will be revealed. Due to this move, all season ticket membership deposits will be refunded.

“We launched our club’s move from Hemel Hempstead to Ottawa on March 9, 2020. A few days later, the pandemic began its spread within Canada. In essence, we have lived the entirety of our existence amid the pandemic. Last season, we were revving up to play our inaugural campaign, when we were forced to pull out due to the ongoing proliferation of the pandemic.

“Let it be known, a wide range of solutions have been explored, with a view to keeping this club in Ottawa. As well, numerous factors were considered. These factors included but were not limited to; consultation with both the governments of the United Kingdom, and Canada, and the projected ease and availability of travel options next year.

“Unfortunately, despite the extreme motivation, significant financial investment, and the heart and soul of our staff being poured into the task, it has proven to be a bridge too far.

“We would like to thank our sponsors, Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, and most of all our fans in the Ottawa region for their steadfast support. We hope one day professional Rugby League can return to Canada, and specifically TD Place Stadium.”

    Why is Rugby leagie a Minor Sport?
    Because the English are myopic and the Australians are shortsighted.
