Ottawa Reacts: Pay What You Want Home Opener

The ‘Pay What You Want’ Home Opener announcement on Monday was well received by our fans and the Ottawa community. For those who didn’t catch it, fans will not only be able to pay what they want to attend our Home Opener Match on August 14th, but proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to the Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa. This is what you call a win/win/win.

At the monumental press conference there was Ottawa’s Mayor Jim Watson, Ontario’s Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Minister, The Hon. Lisa Macleod, Atletico Ottawa’s President Jeff Hunt along with Head Coach Mista and a crew of Atelti players and staffers. It was an incredible day resulting in a powerful opportunity to bring the community together. The date of our PWYW Home Opener is August 14. You don’t want to miss it. Get your tickets HERE.

It’s in our DNA as a club to put the community first. It’s direct lineage from a 100 plus years philosophy from Atlético Madrid. We hope this match serves as an event that brings us all back together, safely. A return to live sports with our friends and family.

When you announce something of this magnitude you never know what the reaction is going to be. We were thrilled to see the love coming back to us.
