“The Association de soccer de Gatineau is pleased to participate in a partnership with Atlético Ottawa and to join a highly reputable, professional-level club,” commented Marie Marcaurelle, President of AS Gatineau. “We are pleased and grateful for this valuable and unique opportunity which we are convinced will promote the participation and enthusiasm of our young athletes in the wonderful sport of soccer and allow them to be exposed to high-level players and coaches. Long live and success to our partnership!”
“We knew this year would require us to work hard on developing our relationships with Powered By partner clubs, and we’re excited this appealed to AS Gatineau as much as it did for us to have them be a part of the program,” commented Fernando López, CEO of Atlético Ottawa. “We continue to design and offer new and exciting initiatives that bring real benefit to local clubs and their athletes. We’re committed to lifting this community and its soccer development to new heights; our Powered By partner clubs will have front seats through it all!”
