Atletico Ottawa News Release

Atlético Ottawa’s Rubén del Campo has been named the Canadian Premier League’s Player of the Month for May of 2024.

The lethal Swiss striker scored four goals in four CPL matches in May against Valour, Pacific, Vancouver FC and Forge. Atlético Ottawa rose to the top of the CPL table, while del Campo leads the league’s Golden Boot race. Beyond the goals, however, he has done an excellent job of leading the line for Atleti.

“I’m not only happy about the goals that he’s scoring, but what he gives to the team,” said Atlético Ottawa manager Carlos González. “He’s capable to hold the ball in certain moments and giving us possession. He’s able to press high, to be aggressive and to give problems to the centre-backs of the other team. He’s capable to thread in behind the defensive line. So he’s doing many good things.”

Del Campo was included in the CPL Team of the Week for four straight weeks during this dominant run. He joins Forge’s Tristan Borges in receiving the honour, who was named the league’s Player of the Month for April.
