Winnipeg’s professional soccer team will be meeting fans and having fun on Sunday at Assiniboine Park Zoo as part of the first-ever Valour FC Day.

The team is following in the footsteps of its CFL counterpart, as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers held a similar event July 7.

The event, which takes place in the Journey to Churchill area, runs from 1-3 p.m. and will include ‘adventure lists’ for fans to complete, as well as a chance to meet players, mascots, practice their soccer skills, and more.
