As they say, tis the season as the holidays are in the air. With just over four months until Valour FC’s first season in the Canadian Premier League (CPL), we are waiting like kids at the Christmas tree for the first kick off. With recent player signings and the U-Sports draft in the books, the picture is starting to become more apparent with what our team will look like. As the stockings are being hung by the chimney with care, here are some things we wish for in the inaugural Valour FC season.

For months CanPL fans across the country have been eagerly awaiting news of the first player signings and yesterday, the league cleverly began building anticipation with several teasers. Valour FC posted a letter and video from our first player, giving us a sneak peek at who it might be, and the speculation began with fervor.

Now we know that our player, the first man committed to representing Valour, is Skylar Thomas and we wholeheartedly welcome him to this city! Born in Scarborough, Thomas played soccer at Syracuse University for four years, before being drafted 11th overall by Toronto FC in 2015. The next four years […]

We are just catching our breath now, after a busy last week. It began with Valour season tickets going on sale on Monday and culminated on Friday with a hard fought trialist battle on a cold blustery Winnipeg evening. It was hard not to imagine for a moment that April was here, as we cheered the boys on from the stands. It’s no secret that Red River Rising is all in with our support of Rob Gale and his players and we will continue to partner with the club, making sure we are the loudest supporters in the Canadian Premier league.
