Technical difficulties experienced during the first-ever Ottawa RedBlacks game at TD Place Friday night were a thing of the past by the time Ottawa Fury FC hit the pitch Sunday afternoon, the Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group said Monday.

Huge concession lines, audio/visual issues and malfunctioning ATMs were a few of the blemishes on an otherwise memorable and historic night for the city and the people behind bringing football and soccer back to Lansdowne vowed the problems would be fixed quickly.

That appears to be the case.

"We didn't experience any of the issues that we had Friday night (on Sunday)," OSEG CEO Bernie Ashe told the Sun Monday.

Granted, the 14,500-plus on hand for the soccer game wasn't quite the sold out 24,000 that showed up for RedBlacks opening night -- but a big crowd is a big crowd and another night of broken cash machines and long beer waits likely wouldn't have been well-received.
