Following on from the enormously successful Bracknell Bees Home & Away Jersey Own & Loan Scheme and special edition Halloween and Christmas Jumper jerseys, where the club have managed to sell each and every jersey so far this season, we are pleased to unveil a third and final unique extra jersey that the Bees squad will be wearing as part of the 2016/17 English Premier Ice Hockey League campaign.
Our tremendous Armed Forces jerseys will be worn by the Bees players for the home games throughout the month of March at The Hive. Sunday 5th March v Milton Keynes Lightning, Sunday 12th March v Sheffield Steeldogs and the final home game of the season on Saturday 18th March v Hull Pirates.
The fantastic jerseys have once again been designed by our friends at Cassio Designs and will be manufactured and supplied by Jersey 53 and we thank both Stuart & Ali, our valued club partners for their efforts in turning these from an idea into reality
A further Thank you must also go out to long time Bees fan and Media Manager John Slater who has agreed to fund the purchase of the Own & Loan Armed Forces Jerseys for this season. The club wish to express our gratitude to him for this fantastic gesture which has assisted the club in making the decision to proceed with Armed Forces jerseys for another season.
Remember that when you purchase one of these unique special edition jerseys you will be helping to raise additional funds for the club, so each and every jersey sold helps!
You can purchase these jerseys as part of an Own & Loan Scheme by either emailing Yvonne Slater at firstname.lastname@example.org or seeing her on a home match night – starting at this weekend’s home game at The Hive!
Sold on a strictly first come, first served basis only, these jerseys are priced at £125 for each of Lukas Smital, David Gaborcik, Luka Basic and Martin Pavliceks jerseys with all other players’ jerseys being £100 each. There will also be 3 “blood” shirts, with no name but a number (60, 61 or 62), available at the price of £75 each. Full payment is required on reservation of your jersey via BACS payment (ideally).
The design for the special edition Bracknell Bees Armed Forces jersey can be seen on the attached image or HERE
As a jersey owner all successful participants will see their name in The Buzz, the Bracknell Bees match night programme, for the three games where the jerseys are to be worn as well as having their names announced on the three match nights as the shirt sponsors and also for goals, assists, penalties etc.. on those evenings.
As a further added bonus the successful participants will have their jerseys handed to them in a special presentation post game at the Bees final home game of the season on Saturday 18th March or at a later date should the team make the playoffs. The jersey will be available post game and you can then have your photo on the ice with the player in question handing you the jersey.
You can also enter the Shirt off a Back raffles on the three evenings in March for a chance to win one of the special edition jerseys. One player each night will also wear a Shirt Off a Back jersey with the Shirt Off a Back prizes on these special evenings being, subject to possible change, Bees player/coach Lukas Smital and imports David Gaborcik & Martin Pavlicek.
The club will also be making a donation to the ABF (Army Benevolvent Fund) in support of our Armed Forces. We all truly value the job they do in keeping our country safe!
Finally, on behalf of all connected with the club we would like to thank every supporter who has purchased these unique jerseys this season. Your support has been truly incredible, please do not underestimate how appreciated your support is by us all.
