On a night where the team looks to build momentum after capturing their first win of the season, the Ottawa Redblacks will be celebrating the organization's greatest achievement. 

At TD Place on Friday, August 5, it is 'Legacy Night', and the Redblacks play host to the team they beat in the 2016 Grey Cup in a thrilling 39-33 overtime win.

The Redblacks look for their second straight win against the Calgary Stampeders after a victory over the Toronto Argonauts on July 31. 

Players from the 2016 championship team will be on hand for 'Legacy Night', an evening where Ottawa's Canadian Football League (CFL) team commemorates its Grey Cup win six years ago. 

At halftime, the Redblacks will honour former Ottawa Rough Riders greats Kenny Lehmann and Jerry 'Soupy' Campbell. Lehmann was a CFL all-star from 1965-1969 and was part of two Grey Cup championship teams in 1968 and 1969.

After joining the Rough Riders from Calgary during the 1968 season, 'Soupy' went on to win his first of three Grey Cups with Ottawa that season. He would win his second the following year before enshrining his name on the Grey Cup for a third time in 1973.
