Senators to try soccer-style fan section for 10 games this season

Calling on all hooligans: the Ottawa Senators are looking to create a soccer-style atmosphere at the Canadian Tire Centre this season.

Section 319 will be cordoned off for the Red Scarf Union – the team's official fan group – for 10 games this season, according to Chris Hofley of the Ottawa Sun.

The "official supporters section" will allow standing, chanting, signage and supporters will be encouraged to generate as much noise (and maybe a little hatred toward the opposing team) as possible.

Ottawa may be tip-toeing into the idea, but creativity appears necessary for the Senators; they are the only Canadian franchise that has experienced attendance issues over the past few seasons.
