Each jersey will cost £115.00 each which you will loan to the player to use until the end of the season.

Your Basingstoke Bison are pleased to announce the details of ‘ever’ popular team jersey “Own and Loan” scheme for the forthcoming 2018/2019 NIHL season.
Fans will have the opportunity to sponsor the Home & Away jerseys.

This season it is hoped that both the jerseys will be worn at home for a half a season each, with the light jersey being worn until a date in December (to be confirmed) and then the dark jersey being worn for the remainder of the 2018 / 19 season.

Once you have purchased your favourite player’s 2018 / 19 jersey you will then ‘loan’ it back to the club, where the shirt will be worn throughout the regular season by the player. At the end of the season there will be a handover ceremony, where it will be presented to you by the player.

How to Apply:

To own and loan the shirt of your favourite player you need to send an email to: stating in the subject line: the Player Name + either Home Match Jersey or Away Match Jersey

Applications for those players already signed for the 2018 / 19 season will open at 6pm on the 12th July 2018 and from then on immediately after the announcement of each player signing announcement.

After 48 hours all applications will be reviewed.

Selection will be based on the following criteria in order;

1.Direct family member of the player (email confirmation from the player will be required as evidence).
2.If last seasons shirt sponsor wants to continue sponsoring the shirt.
3.Random draw made by the organisation from all applications received.

*** Whilst you can send in as many emails as you wish, each email must have a unique player name and shirt description in the subject bar. Any emails received that do not comply will be voided. ***

If no applications are received within 48 hours of the player announcement then the shirt is available to own and loan on a first come, first served basis at any time.

Shirts will not be confirmed until payment is received, once registering your choice the successful applicant will be contacted and an invoice sent to their email address and immediate payment will be required.

If your chosen player is selected for “Shirt Off the Back”, we will use your ‘Own and loan’ jersey for the first 2 periods of that particular game before being swapped for a new jersey, for the 3rd period which will then be presented to the winner of that week’s competition.
