January 25, 2023 – Canadian Premier League (CPL)Atletico Ottawa News Release

Atlético Ottawa and Manisa FK have reached an agreement for the transfer of Ballou Tabla on a permanent transfer with immediate effect, pending the delivery of his International Transfer Certificate (ITC).

Ballou joined Ottawa ahead of the 2022 season and was a crucial element of Atlético’s historic season, scoring 7 goals and providing 5 assists as head coach Carlos González’s side went on to win the Regular Season and host the playoff final in front of 15,000 fans at TD Place.

“This transfer represents Atlético Ottawa’s growth and reaffirms that the club is going in the right direction. We strive to attract the best players to the Canadian Premier League, providing them with fantastic opportunities to continue with their professional development, in part, thanks to Atleti’s world-class connections and well-established global network” said CEO Fernando López. “Ballou’s time in Ottawa proves that we can bring in top-quality players and help them develop, giving them a platform to move on to strong leagues around the world. This is what aim to continue doing as we work to build a stronger and even more competitive side ahead of the 2023 season.”

“My time in Ottawa has been fantastic. I have found a lot of things I’d lost, first of all my smile and then my joy on the field,” said Ballou. “I met some wonderful people, incredible staff and passionate fans. Every single day was full of positives, what an experience. Unfortunately, I have to leave in this way, without a chance to give the fans a real goodbye, but that’s soccer. This experience with Atletico Ottawa has brought me back to such a good place in football and I am so happy and grateful.”

We wish Ballou every success in this new professional endeavour.
