During 30 regular-season matches, Fury FC were shown just one red card, which occurred during the first match of the campaign. Ottawa picked up 45 yellow cards for the fourth least in the league during the 2015 season. 

“Discipline is something that we preach - not putting the team in trouble with bad actions,” head coach Marc Dos Santos said. “It shows a team that isn’t selfish and gives everything that it has and it makes me very proud to see the team get this reward.”

Along the way, Ottawa set a handful of records, including a 648-minute shutout streak, most clean sheets by goalkeeper Romuald Peiser (14), and a 12-game unbeaten streak on the road The club, though, ultimately fell to the New York Cosmos, 3-2, in The Championship Final.
