Rider Shares Series III Ready To Hit Market

The Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club announced today that Rider Shares Series III will go on sale Friday, June 10th.

The third edition of the Rider Share campaign will commemorate the 1989 Grey Cup championship victory. The Share itself will feature the likenesses of Kent Austin, Bobby Jurasin and Don Narcisse with an illustration of the championship winning kick in the background. A limited edition 1,989 of these shares will feature the personal autograph of Austin, Jurasin and Narcisse.

“Without question this is a very special Share offering,” stated Riders VP of Sales and Marketing Steve Mazurak. “It will be an amazing collectable piece for our fans as we pay tribute to the 1989 Grey Cup championship team with personal autographs from three Rider greats.”

As a Roughrider shareholder, fans will get the opportunity to vote on team leadership, contribute to the team’s long-term viability, and help create a football dynasty owned and operated by its fans. In addition, Rider shareholders receive a number of other benefits including discounts on merchandise, preferred seating upgrades, first rights to priority parking and access to special Shareholder events.

Each shareholder will receive a personalized and numbered share certificate, an owners card, as well as a window decal and bracelet. Rider Shares Series III are available for a cost of $250 per share, with an option to have the certificate fully framed for $499.

To own a piece of the pride and become a Rider shareholder, fans can call 1-888-4-RIDERS (474-3377) or visit the Rider Ticket Office at Mosaic Stadium.

The Club will officially launch the Share Campaign on Friday, June 10th at the Rider Store at the Northgate Mall. Rider greats Bobby Jurasin and Don Narcisse will be in attendance to sign autographs.
