We may as well use our time at home to prepare TIFO to fill the stands when games resume. The Kings Head has generously donated a prize for the best TIFO – A Kings Head scarf and a $25 Kings Head gift card. Your TIFO can be any size you like and can be made with any materials that you already have at home. You could use an old bed-sheet or pillowcase or surprise us with something outside of the box. It’s time to have a little fun! Judges – Rob Gale, José Galán, and Chris Graves TIFO will be judged on the following criteria Effort – Is it clear that you put blood, sweat and tears into this? Creativity – This is a quarantine! We want to see what you can do with what you have at home. Utility […]
We are all trying to survive without having any Valour games to watch due to our current global situation, so to help pass the time and get us into our supporting mindset, we are looking for entries for our next scarf contest. If you are a member of Red River Rising and support Valour FC then we would love to see what you can come up with! Scarfs that are entered will be voted on by fellow supporters to determine the winner. We will then hold a pre-order drive to help members guarantee a new scarf as this will be a limited-edition scarf. If your scarf is voted as the winner by the end, you will receive your scarf on the house as well as your choice of a $20.00 gift card to either Valour store, Kings Head, or Nicolino’s. […]
It’s been a long off season and we’ve been suffering from Trench withdrawal, so we decided to show Winnipeg’s other new sports team some love. On March 8th, we will be cheering on the Winnipeg ICE, in section B. If you would like to join us, use promo code PEOPLESCHAMP here for 50% off. If you can’t make this game, the 50% off code is valid for any remaining game of the season. For those planning to also go to the free Moose game that day, some of us will be making a day of it, starting at the Kings Head for drinks at 12:00 pm.
The Spring season is over, and wow was that a busy couple of months! June alone was packed, between Valour games, the Voyageurs Cup, Gold Cup and World Cup. On July 2nd, as I looked ahead to 16 days without any games, it almost felt like a welcome reprieve. But after 6 days, I’m already feeling a little bit of withdrawal. And we are facing a long 3 weeks before we can get back to The Trench on July 27th. If, like me, you are looking for ways to keep the support going through July, I highly recommend travelling to an away game. It’s a fun way to connect with other travelling supporters, and there is a comraderie that comes while supporting on the road. With 276 people in our section, it’s hard to get to know everyone and away days […]
Tonight, Valour plays its first Canadian Championship match in Halifax (4:15 CDT). For supporters, this tournament means a lot. Affectionately known as the VCup, The Voyageurs Cup got its humble beginnings when a group of Voyageurs crowdfunded to purchase the cup. If this story is new to you, you can read more about it here, but the most important thing you need to know is that this cup was made right here in Winnipeg. Early stage cup games can be light on attendance but given the cup’s history with supporters and with Winnipeg, I would love to see us fill The Trench (and the stadium) for our home leg of the tie on June 12th. If ever there was a game for us to be loud, it is this one. A series win means we move on to play Ottawa Fury. […]
