Ottawa Intrepid was a community-owned pro soccer club that competed for two seasons in the Canadian Soccer League in the late 1980’s.  Intrepid played in tiny Terry Fox Stadium, with a seating capacity of around 2,000.  The franchise was previously known as the Ottawa Pioneers during the Canadian Soccer League’s debut season in 1987.

Intrepid disbanded following the 1989 season. The CSL closed down after six seasons of play in 1992.
