Welcome to the ottawafootyblog, the new home for updates, match reports, information, nonsense and searing insights into the world of Ottawa Footy Sevens. If you arrived here via ottawafootysevens.com or from @ottawafooty7s, you probably already have a pretty good idea of what we’re all about. However, if you’ve clicked through to here from somewhere else and are thinking, “Who are these idiots?” we probably should make at least a halfhearted attempt at an explanation.
Ottawa Footy Sevens is a coed soccer league based in Ottawa (and Gatineau), Canada. Then again, you probably worked that out from our web address. Equally unsurprising is the fact that almost all of our leagues are 7 vs 7 soccer. They are recreational, coed and (hopefully) well organised and fun for all of our players. We play in various locations throughout the city, at the best outdoor and indoor venues in Ottawa. The leagues were started with the basic goal of running leagues that we would want to play in ourselves, and we continue to use that as our basic principle when planning and running all of our leagues. Thankfully, it seems that there a lot of other people who share our outlook on what a recreational social league should look like and the league has grown to well over 100 teams.
