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. […]

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 […]

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. Signing an overseas well known International With the CPL now in play, the potential is there for top Canadian internationals to potentially come home. Just dreaming of the likes of Ian Hume, Milan Borjan, suiting up for a CPL club is mouth-watering. While it is more likely […]
