The official mascot for UEFA EURO 2016 was revealed on 18 November 2014 before France's game against Sweden.
He did not have a name, though, and a public vote was launched to decide it. After 107,790 people took part, Super Victor took 48% of the vote ahead of alternative names Driblou (25%) and Goalix (27%).
I'm just an ordinary kid, like so many others! I was born in a small town in France. My father used to be a good footballer and, since a very young age, I have always loved playing football with my friends. I am not as good as my father was, but I am always trying to improve my skills. For me the most important thing when playing football is to have fun and play fair!
One day, I was playing football with some of my friends; it was a very tight game. Our team received a free-kick just on the edge of the box and, feeling confident, I stepped up to take it. My shot missed and the ball went behind a fence where we could not see it anymore. As I was looking for it, I saw a very mysterious shape hiding in the high grass.
I got closer and discovered a very old magic chest! I am very curious, so I decided to open the chest and I found three really cool items: a red cape, some brand new stylish football boots, and the UEFA EURO 2016 ball! I was all excited about my find and then … BLAST! The items started swirling around me and I suddenly found I could do loads of cool things!
My super-cool red cape enables me to fly up high into the sky and travel all around the globe at super-fast speeds! This is great as I can now go and play football with people all over France in a single day!
My magic football boots give me great skills and I can even invent new tricks! I love to bring people together to play football. The UEFA EURO 2016 ball never fails to get everyone up for a game! This is my favourite power, as we always seem to have fun when we're playing football together.
As the official mascot of UEFA EURO 2016, my mission is to have fun with fans from all over the world and celebrate the Art of Football. I have been a very lucky boy to have been given these superpowers, but I want to share this gift with the rest of the world! This is why I will be travelling throughout France and around the world, to bring fun and happiness to people from all sorts of countries and backgrounds.
