SGI EXPANDS RIDER PLATES TO MOTORCYCLES AND SNOWMOBILES

Released on September 28, 2012

Saskatchewan football fans will soon be able to show their Rider Pride on almost any ride.

Starting Oct. 1, SGI will begin offering its Rider specialty plates in a smaller format for use on motorcycles and snowmobiles.

"It's no secret Rider Priders are the world's greatest fans, and are incredibly loyal and supportive of our team," Minister responsible for SGI Donna Harpauer said. "That's evident by how many Rider plates you already see on vehicles all over Saskatchewan, and now fans will be able to proudly display them on their motorcycles and snowmobiles too."

The smaller plate follows the same design as the large plate, featuring the Roughrider logo and the phrase "Pride Lives Here", with regular series plates featuring an R followed by three numbers. The cost for the small format plate will be the same as the original plate, $50 plus GST, with net proceeds again going to the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Small format Rider licence plates can also be personalized, as long as it is four characters or fewer, for a total cost of $125 plus GST.

SGI has issued more than 23,300 Rider plates since they were introduced in 2010, resulting in proceeds of more than $600,000 for the football club.

"It never ceases to amaze me how dedicated, loyal and passionate our fans are," Saskatchewan Roughriders President and CEO Jim Hopson said. "I'd like to thank SGI for giving fans yet another way to show off their Rider Pride, but most importantly I'd like to thank the fans for their incredible support of the Rider plate program over the past two years."

Customers interested in ordering a Rider plate in either size can do so at any SGI motor licence issuer. More information on Rider plates can be found on SGI's website at www.sgi.sk.ca.
