Ottawa's facility, while decent, is only half of a new stadium and not nearly as nice as the one in Russia. Then there is the issue of turf vs. grass. Not sure how easy it is to add grass to TD Place.
its relatively easy to add temporary grass to any stadium. they've been doing it since the 94 world cup. even indoors
