22,000 Rider plates and counting
September 23, 2011
It’s been over a year since Rider licence plates first became available and they’re still scoring big with fans.
Since kicking off the plate in May 2010, SGI has received roughly 22,000 orders resulting in a profit of over $585,000 for the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club.
“The people of Saskatchewan’s support of the Riders is truly spectacular,” said Minister Responsible for SGI Tim McMillan. “Every plate sold helps the Riders financially and demonstrates the fans’ dedication to this great team.”
After covering production and administration costs, SGI provides net revenues earned from the sale of Rider plates to the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club.
“We are very appreciative of SGI for providing fans with this unique way to show their Rider pride,” said Saskatchewan Roughriders President and CEO Jim Hopson. “Whether it’s cheering us on at a game, or driving around with a Rider plate, we thank the people of Saskatchewan for their continued support of our team.”
Rider plates are available through any SGI motor licence issuer in the province at a cost of $50 plus GST. For fans wanting a personalized Rider licence plate there is an additional cost of $75 plus GST, for a total of $125 plus GST.
Existing personalized licence plates that have five characters or fewer can be moved to a Rider plate for the Rider plate fee of $50 plus GST, plus a $20 plate replacement charge.
