Like most Canadian cities, Winnipeg is a hockey town.

But during the Rio Olympics and the London Games four years earlier, this prairie city embraced the Beautiful Game because it was impossible not to cheer for the women's soccer team and Desiree Scott, the star midfielder who still calls Winnipeg home.

Scott is many things. She is a two-time Olympian, a double bronze-medal winner, a remarkable ambassador for the sport and a role model for the next generation of women who will wear the country's colours on pitches around the world.

As part of our new Free Press Insiders Program, I'm delighted to invite our readers to join me for a post-Olympic homecoming for Team Canada's No. 11 at our News Café.

Our readers are at the front of the line for this chance to get up close to Scott and her bronze medal as we talk about her passion for soccer, growing the game and why Canadian women were able to kick butt at the Rio Olympics.

After I've finished putting the questions to Scott, those in the audience will get a chance to keep the conversation going.

We are making this event free for our readers and encouraging soccer moms and dads to take their daughters to this unique event wearing their team jerseys.

When:

Wednesday, August 31, 2016 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Sorry, all the tickets for this event have been claimed. New offers and events will be posted regularly, so come back often!
