"We think the new colors are in tune with the Ottawa sporting tradition," said Brad Watters, President of the Rebel Lacrosse Club. "All of Ottawa's sports teams -- the Senators, the Renegades, the Lynx and the 67's -- wear black, red and white. We think this change will develop a closer affinity between Ottawa sports fans and their professional lacrosse team."
"This is another step in the rebirth of our franchise," added Watters. "We have a new coach in Terry Sanderson, we will have an excellent team on the lacrosse floor, and we hope a move to a new arena will help add to our fans' experience at the games. We're excited about a great season and the future."
The Rebel, which played at the Corel Centre during its inaugural 2000-2001 season and most of the 2001-2002 campaign, will play its home games at the Civic Centre at Lansdowne Park during the 2002-2003 season. Ottawa begins its 16-game regular-season schedule of National Lacrosse League games at home on Saturday, December 28 at the Civic Centre against the Calgary Roughnecks.
