Winnipeg’s newest professional sports team has a new mascot.

Valour Football Club announced the addition of Vic the Lion as the city’s newest fuzzy cheerleader on Saturday.

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.
