Vic, who sports the team’s burgundy jersey, yellow eyes, adorable schnozz and a full head – whoops, we mean mane – of blonde fur, will join the likes of Goldie, Mick E. Moose and Buzz and Boomer to round out the Winnipeg sports mascot family.

Valour FC’s inaugural season will get underway at Investors Group Field later this spring.
