The Genting Casino Coventry Blaze are again offering fans the opportunity to Own and Loan a player’s jersey for the 2017/18 Elite League season.
The way it works is simple. You buy your favourite players home or away jersey and 'loan' it back to the club. Your chosen player will wear the jersey in league games up until a specific date (to be confirmed based on fixtures but end of November is standard) and then you will be presented with the game-worn jersey by the player and a photo sent to you. Not only do you get to keep the jersey but your chosen name will also be printed on the back of it.
You can have your name, twitter handle or a friend/family members name if you're purchasing for a special occasion. All names will be verified by the club.
Once you, or the person you purchase for has been presented with the jersey, a replacement will be issued to the player, again with your chosen name on and this will be auctioned off in our end of season jersey auction.
If your player is chosen as the jersey raffle on a match night, a new jersey will be issued to the player for that game (again with your name on) and the original returned to him after the game, therefore the jersey you receive will have seen as much game wear as possible.
Last season the Own and Loan scheme was more popular than it ever has been with almost every single jersey being snapped up.
A significant benefit of becoming an 'Own and Loaner' is that next summer you will be given a special pre-sale buying period which many fans have taken advantage of for this season, explaining the number already sold on general launch.
So, if you want ‘first dibs’ next summer, get involved now for that fantastic benefit!
Regular season home and away Own and Loan jerseys are priced at £250 and payment must be made at the time of purchase.
Note: Challenge Cup Jerseys will also be available to Own and Loan for the upcoming season. More information to follow.
