Why is The Allstate Soccer Show: an Online Event This Year?
Due to COVID-19 and its impact on live, physical events, we’ve had to make adjustments. We’re excited to announce that the 2020 version of The Allstate Soccer Show will be Live Online and all Canadians are now invited to attend.
What Can I Expect at The Allstate Soccer Show: Live Online?
Pretty much all the great activities you’d expect if The Allstate Soccer Show was a physical event, including 1-on-1 Meet & Greets with your Soccer Idols, interactive Stage Presentations and Panels with audience Q&A sessions, the chance to win prizes and much more soccer fun in the Exhibit Hall!
How Much Does A Ticket to The Allstate Soccer Show Cost?
$0. Registration is completely free! Everyone can enjoy all activities at The Allstate Soccer Show for free, with one registration per person.
The Allstate Soccer Show has partnered with The DeRo Foundation and has committed to match donations up to $10,000. If you’d like, you can learn more about and donate to The DeRo Foundation on our website and during the Show.
What is the DeRo Foundation?
Established by MLSE Ambassador, Pan Am Games Ambassador and Motivational Speaker, Dwayne De Roasario, the DeRo Foundation supports local community initiatives through the creation of sustainable After-School mentorship programs, which use soccer as a platform to help youth in high priority neighbourhoods develop the skills and confidence they need to succeed.
How Does The Allstate Soccer Show: Live Online Work?
The Allstate Soccer Show: Live Online will be a 3-dimenstional experience, working on a web-enabled platform that you can access from any device (smartphone, tablet and/or computer). You do not need to download an app.
To participate in the 1-on-1 Meet & Greets with the your Soccer Idols, you’ll need a computer with a web cam, a mic and a strong Internet connection.
What Are the 1-on-1 Meet & Greets?
The 1-on-1 Meet & Greets provide fans with the chance to interact on-screen with our exciting line-up, comprised of players from Canada Soccer’s Women’s and Men’s National Teams (active and retired), Major League Soccer, the Canadian Premier League and Manchester United!
Fans will be able to speak and virtually interact with the players.

Can Every Show Attendee Meet With the Players?
Unfortunately, we cannot offer every attendee a spot in the Meet & Greets, due to anticipated high demand and time limitations.
However, everyone who registers for the Show in advance will have the chance to win one spot in a Meet & Greet session.
How Can I Win a Meet & Greet Spot?
If you’ve registered for The Allstate Soccer Show, you’ll receive an email starting two weeks before the Show with a list of the participating players. You can select as many players as you’d like to meet; however, winners are only able to meet with one (1) player due to volume requests. The player you will meet will be randomly assigned to you.
You’ll want to check into the Show on August 30, 2020 to be notified by email if you’ve won a spot. If you don’t receive an email, you didn’t win.
We will also draw a few select spots in a Super Draw before the Show. Fans who win spots in this draw will be notified 48 hours in advance.
What Can I Expect If I Win A Meet & Greet Spot?
You’ll be notified by email which player you’ll be meeting with and the time of that Meet & Greet session.
In that email will be a unique link into the Meet & Greet session.
You’ll be asked to enter the Meet & Greet session 5 -10 minutes before it starts to join the line up. While in line, you’ll see where your place is in the queue. You can then choose to watch the fans ahead of you meet with the player or you can enjoy the Show’s other activities; however, you’ll want to pay close attention so you’re ready to go up on screen when it’s your turn. We recommend having two windows open at a time if you want to access the Show while waiting in line.
Each fan will have 45 seconds of screen time to engage with the player. Have fun, ask questions, fist bump, high-five, take a screen shot and more.
Please note that we will not tolerate any profanity or abusive behaviour and will immediately end the screen time should that arise.
What Can I Expect At The Stage Presentations?
There are four exciting Stage presentations scheduled at The Allstate Soccer Show:
1. Canada Soccer’s Women’s and Men’s National Teams’ stars will be interviewed by TLN’s Camila Gonzalez. Both panels will feature a 30-minute Q&A when fans can ask questions.
2. Dwayne De Rosario will present and answer questions.
3. Manchester United Legend Peter Schmeichel will be interviewed by TLN’s Camila Gonzalez
Can I Win Prizes?
Yes! There will be prizes to be won throughout The Allstate Soccer Show.
