The Ottawa RedBlacks can clinch their first playoff berth with a win over Winnipeg at TD Place Friday night.

History can be made in the Glebe tonight if the Ottawa RedBlacks can pull out a win against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

A win over the Bombers would give the RedBlacks their first-ever playoff berth in franchise history, this in just their second season in the CFL.

The RedBlacks have been a tour de force this season, piling up points in the win column like it’s going out of style.

The RedBlacks already have eight wins this season, compared to just two wins in their inaugural season last year. A win would move the RedBlacks into a three-way tie for first place in the East Division, but it may be short-lived, as rivals the Toronto Argonauts and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats both play this weekend.

A win by either club would push the RedBlacks down in the standings.

But the RedBlacks are focused at the task at hand: beating the bombers and making the playoffs. It can all happen tonight at TD Place. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. There are still a few tickets left for the game. Click here to cheer them on at TD Place.

It’s a sports fans dream weekend in the Glebe, as pubs will be packed all weekend with the Toronto Blue Jays taking on the Kansas City Royals Friday and Saturday. Check out our many local pubs that will be streaming the games all weekend here.

And soccer fans will be excited to cheer on their Ottawa Fury FC Sunday, as they push to earn the top seed in the upcoming NASL Championship tournament in November. The Fury are just one point behind the top-seed New York Cosmos in the combined standings. A win over the San Antonio Scorpions Sunday will help in that push. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. Get your tickets here.
