Jets fans now have own licence plates

  • Print

IF you weren't able to make the drive to 13,000 this spring, you can show your support for the Winnipeg Jets by driving pretty much everywhere else.

The hockey club unveiled the latest specialty licence plate in the province Tuesday morning, featuring its logo, a "WJ" before the plate's numbers and its tag line, "Fuelled by Passion."

Not only do the plates give hockey fans a chance to show their support for the team but they'll also provide some much-needed funding to children's charities at the same time, said Mark Chipman, chairman of True North Sports & Entertainment, which owns the team.

The plates, which will be available on Dec. 12, will cost $70, with $30 of that going to the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation, the team's philanthropic arm.

"One of the most gratifying aspects of being involved in the business of hockey is it creates opportunities to raise capital and distribute that to causes that are deserving of our support," he said.

The Jets licence plate run is unlimited. There will be an original production of 20,000 but additional plates will be produced and distributed by more than 300 Autopac outlets throughout the province if demand warrants.
