CTV: The Ottawa Black Bears, a professional lacrosse team, will be coming to Ottawa next season.

A news conference at the Canadian Tire Centre on Wednesday announced the New York Riptide team from the National Lacrosse League will be moving to Ottawa later this year.

New York Riptide will change its name to Ottawa Black Bears shortly. Their home games will be played at the Canadian Tire Centre.

Erik Baker, a Co-Founder and Managing Director of GF Sports and Entertainment said the reason for the league chose Ottawa includes the strength of the Senators Sports and Entertainment brand, plus the large demands of box lacrosse in the region and Ottawa’s fantastic arena.

Baker said the name Ottawa Black Bears not only reflects the attributes of Ottawa but also reflects their team’s values.

“We will be a community-dedicated team that will be relentless, proud, passionate and gritty,” Baker said.

The regular home game is anticipated to take place in December.
