The Montreal Impact released a statement concerning affiliate club Ottawa Fury FC's announcement they would be suspending operations on Friday.
"The suspension of activities of our partner club over the last three years is a sad day for soccer in Ottawa, the Outaouais region and for Canada," declared Vassili Cremanzidis, head of analysis and assistant director of player personnel for the Impact in a statement. "A reserve or affiliate team is vital in order to give playing time to our young players. We will therefore look for a solution for the future by analyzing all possible options."
The Fury played the past three seasons in the USL Championship.
