In March 2008, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG), which includes: developer William Shenkman; developer John Ruddy, President of Trinity Development Group; developer Roger Greenberg, Chairman of Minto Group; and Jeff Hunt, owner of the Ottawa 67′s, were awarded a conditional Canadian Football League (CFL) expansion franchise contingent on securing a suitable stadium and needed Frank Clair Stadium to be renovated. In the fall of 2007, the OSEG group had announced that it would seek the CFL franchise, and intended to play in an upgraded Frank Clair Stadium, with private boxes and other amenities. The stadium plan sketched out the use of a residential and commercial component to pay for the upgrades.
