Ottawa Fury FC will take the field at TD Place for the first time in the Spring Season on Saturday. It will be an opportunity to return to the site of some of last season’s successes, including winning The Championship Semifinal, and a chance for new players to drink in home support.

Gerardo Bruna, a former Real Madrid and Liverpool product, is one of the new signings for Ottawa coach Paul Dalglish who will be making his home debut.

“He’s trying to play football that suits me and play me in a position I think is new for me, but I can really enjoy,” Bruna told “I was really excited for all the ideas and plans he had for me.”

Bruna, 25, has started in two matches for Ottawa this season. In his time on the field he has floated all over the field, trying to create attacking opportunities.

Ottawa, though, hasn’t yet hit its stride. Fury FC has scored only one goal this season, but it could be the case of a team still working out the kinks after several offseason changes.

“It’s a difficult league,” he said. “It’s a mix of physical and tactical. There’s a lot of quality players. The teams try to play the ball well.”

As the season progresses, Bruna is just hoping to add his quality to a team that is seeking its first win.

“I can only do my part,” Bruna said. “I think we have a good team. The manager has signed a lot of new players and there are a lot of changes in the team.”
