On June 20, 2011 NASL announced that an Ottawa expansion team would join the league once the stadium is ready in 2014. The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) was named as the ownership group of the club. The team replaced Ottawa Fury SC, of the USL PDL, in 2014.
In the late 2013, over 1,500 fans took part in a campaign to help pick the designs for the kits. Working closely with the kit manufacturer, the Club presented fans with three kit design options to vote on and submit their feedback, and the final kit designs reflect the preferences expressed by the Fury FC fan base. On March 29, 2014 the Ottawa Fury FC unveiled their home and away game kits that the club was to wear during its inaugural North American Soccer League (NASL) season. The home and away kits both feature the traditional colours of Ottawa sport: red and black. The home kit is predominantly black and the away kit is predominantly white.
The club play their home games at TD Place Stadium in Lansdowne Park. Due to the then on-going construction at TD Place, the club reached an agreement with Carleton University to stage its 2014 North American Soccer League (NASL) spring season games at Keith Harris Stadium on the Carleton University campus until the construction finished. The agreement with Carleton University allowed the Fury to play all five home games of the ten-game 2014 NASL spring season at Carleton.
For the inaugural season Ottawa Fury FC home matches are televised on Rogers TV Ottawa. Dan Mooney and Gordon Smith provide commentary.
All home and away matches are broadcast on the radio in English on TSN 1200. Play-by-play is done by AJ Jakubec, with colour commentary by Richard Starnes for home matches, and Graeme Ivory for away matches.
Select home matches are broadcast on the radio in French on 94,5 Unique FM. Sinisa Sindik and Guy Girard provide commentary.
As with all teams in the NASL, Ottawa Fury FC webcasts of all their home games. They are available to view on NASL Live, a subscription service that broadcast every NASL game.
