Following up on the success of 2020’s first-ever live online version of The Allstate Soccer Show, Allstate produced three live online events in 2021, in the Spring, Summer and Fall.
Over the course of the three events, over 40 athletes and coaches from multiple leagues and clubs participated, engaging with Canadian soccer fans of all ages from across the country.
Fans of the beautiful game got to chat with their soccer idols in one-on-one Meet & Greets and watch entertaining and informational player panels, where they could also ask questions. More fan engagement took place throughout the event in the Expo Hall where attendees engaged with yet more athletes, coaches and media on screen and entered contests, including real-time soccer trivia, for cool soccer swag.
We would like to thank our partners, including Canada Soccer, the Canadian Premier League, Toronto FC, CF Montréal, Kohler Canada, the TLN Media Group, Chevrolet Canada and all the others, for their contributions to the 2021 events and we look forward to seeing the athletes and most importantly the fans, in-person and live online in 2022.
In 2020, The Allstate Soccer Show’s first-ever online event brought together Canadian soccer lovers of all ages and postal codes. Girls, boys, parents and adult fans from across the country joined professional athletes and staff from Canada Soccer’s Men’s and Women’s National Teams, CF Montréal, Toronto FC, the Canadian Premier League and even Legends from Manchester United to attend or participate in the event.
The event was a huge success. While the Show transitioned online due to Covid-19 restrictions, it was able to replicate the successful 2018 Show that was held in Toronto, Ontario. Once again, the Show featured the chance for one-on-one Meet & Greets interactions with soccer idols, live and pre-recorded player panels on the Main Stage, soccer-themed activations and contests in the Expo Hall and much more. Additionally in 2020, The Allstate Soccer Show raised over $12,000 for The DeRo Foundation through the generous contributions from event attendees that Allstate Canada matched.
The Allstate Soccer Show exists to provide all soccer associations, leagues, teams and event holders with a chance to come together to celebrate the beautiful game and share their stories with Canadian soccer fans.
We would like to thank our partners, including Canada Soccer, the Canadian Premier League and CF Montréal for their contributions to the 2020 event and we look forward to seeing the players again in 2021.
“My experience with The Allstate Soccer Show events has been phenomenal. The one thing that stands out to me is how attendees of all ages and skill levels have the opportunity to learn something new, have fun and have the chance to interact with some of Canada’s best soccer players. Always a high-energy event that’s fantastic for our sport in our country!”
“I had a great time at the Allstate Soccer Show. I had the chance to speak with several football fans across Canada and throughout the world.
Soccer enthusiasts of all ages took turns to ask me questions regarding my club and international career, and my experience in the Premier League.
It was a magnificent moment for me to exchange with fans and share some of my career’s biggest moments, like my winning goal against FC Barcelona with Celtic, or the pride I feel from representing my country since 2007.”
“The Allstate Soccer Show has developed into an incredible platform which drives engagement with Canadian soccer fans from coast-to-coast-to-coast through access to Canada Soccer’s National Team athletes and the presentation of informative and fun content. Canada Soccer is proud to collaborate on this initiative with Allstate as we continue to grow and develop the sport of soccer in Canada.”
“I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My son was able to meet eight different players today and asked all sorts of questions. It inspired him. He has autism and plays on the All Abilities League, just recently being promoted to the Advanced All Abilities League. It was the absolute best experience and we both just wanted to pass a huge thank you.”
“Thanks for a great show! I know that a lot of hard work went into this and I very much appreciate it. By the way, I attended the show in 2018 and enjoyed myself there – thanks for making this one a memorable show to!”
“You have no idea how excited I am. I’m so grateful and lucky I got to talk to players. I want to be a professional player soon. I got great feedback that’s going to be very helpful. Thank you!”
