Ottawa South United
|Full name||Ottawa South United Force|
|Ground||Quinn's Pointe Field at Minto Rec. Complex, Ottawa|
|2017: 6th East Division|
Ottawa South United (competing in League1 Ontario as OSU Force), is a Canadian youth and semi-professional soccer club located in Ottawa, Ontario. The club, since 2003, has operated purely as a youth and amateur club, until a side was entered into the semi-professional League1 Ontario for 2017 season. Starting in 2018, the team's home ground will be Quinn's Pointe Field, part of the Minto Recreation Complex in Barrhaven.
Though only joining League1 Ontario in 2017, the club has a 15 year history as one of the premier academy clubs in Eastern Ontario. The Ottawa South United Soccer Club was founded in 2003 as a merger of Osgoode-Rideau Youth Soccer and South Nepean United.
For the 2017 League1 season Traian Mateas was named head coach and players were recruited from the soccer programs of Carleton University and Algonquin College, as well as OSU's u-18 ranks. The team had a strong start, but was unable to keep up the pace, finishing 6th in the 8-team East Division, with a W/D/L record of 6-2-14 and a -23 goal differential. In cup play, the team reached the second round, beating ProStars FC 4:3, before losing to Durham United 1:4. Forward Marco Natoli lead the team with 10 goals across all competitions, and defender Justin Earle was named a second-team all-star.
Peter Mapendere will coach the side for the upcoming 2018 season
