The Cumberland Panthers are a Canadian football organization based in the Orleans area of Ottawa. The Cumberland Panthers were founded in 1993, starting out in the Mosquito level of the National Capital Amateur Football Association. Progressively, they have increased the number of teams being fielded as their players aged. In 1994, the organization added a team to compete in the Peewee level, followed by Tyke in 1996, and Bantam in 1997. The Panthers now also have two teams competing in the Ontario Varsity Football League in both Varsity (Under-20) and Junior Varsity (Under-17) levels. In 2009 the Panthers added a Pee Wee Varsity team to the OVFL as well. In 2004, the Panthers fielded their first Junior Football team, in the Quebec Junior Football League, joining the Ottawa Sooners and Ottawa Junior Riders as the leagues entries from Ontario. The Cumberland Panthers organization also fields Peewee, and Bantam Girls Touch Football teams, as well as, Tyke and Mosquito Flag Football teams. The Panthers wear royal blue, silver, and white uniforms.

The Panthers currently use Millennium Sports Park as their home field.
