This season fans will have the opportunity to ‘Own & Loan’ the following jerseys.

• Home warm up jersey (to be worn in warm up for all Bison 2019 / 20 home games) – priced @ £100.00 each

As detailed in the recent EIHA press release our light coloured jersey will be worn in all home games played up to and including the games on the weekend of the 21st / 22nd December 2019 and then the dark coloured jersey will be worn for all home games until the end of the league 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 that is available for the season, you need to send an email to: stating in the subject line: the Player Name + either Light Match Jersey, Dark Match Jersey or Home Warm Up jersey.

Applications for those players already signed for the 2019 / 20 season will close at midnight on Monday 1st July 2019 and from then on immediately after the release 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.
