Valour FC: “It’s so important for us to get the Indigenous community involved in what we’re trying to build. This jersey helps in that.”

April 4, 2024 — 

The secondary kit is without question the most-unique and colourful look in Valour’s six-year history. The brainchild of Winnipeg Football Club graphic designer Amanda McWha and with input from the organization’s Director of Indigenous Relations Niigaan Sinclair (professor of Indigenous Studies at the UM), the black jersey is dominated by a sunflower at its the centre, with the Prairie Crocus featured on the kit’s four corners. Featured throughout the jersey are patterns and lines which recognize ‘the dynamic and deep contributions to art, science, and knowledge by the first peoples to our home province.’
