Fans are encouraged to come down to BC Place on Wednesday morning for the unveiling of the new BC Lions jerseys. Our Grey Cup champions will be on hand to model the new looks and sign autographs for fans who purchase their own on the spot.
When: Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 8:00am
Where: Enter through Gate A off the Terry Fox Plaza
Quarterback Travis Lulay, slotback Geroy Simon, kicker Paul McCallum and defensive tackle Khalif Mitchell will be in attendance to show off the new home and away jerseys. If you can’t make it down tomorrow morning, the jerseys will be on sale inside BC Place (at Gate A) until 6:00pm. As of May 9th, you can pick them up at the BC Lions Team Store in Surrey (10605 City Parkway) and online.
Update The new jerseys have been unveiled and BC Lions’ President Dennis Skulsky said that since orange is most significant with the fans, it should be the dominant colour. At the press conference this morning he added that the change is modest but it will make a difference. There is new fabric, better (lighter) material, and the fit is tighter. This will help the players breeze down the field.
Head Coach Mike Benevides added, “orange does look good, does it not?” as he sported his new black and orange hoodie. Players Travis Lulay, Khalif Mitchell, Paul McCallum, and Geroy Simon were on hand to model the new uniforms. Two fans got to sport the new fan jerseys and I received a special goodie bag containing my very first fan football jersey.
Just a reminder that you can stop by Gate A of BC Place today until 6:00pm to check out the new jerseys then they will be available online and at the team store in Surrey.
