RIDER FANS CONTINUE TO SNAP UP LICENCE PLATES
Six months after Rider licence plates entered the playing field, SGI has received about 17,000 orders resulting in a profit of close to $460,000 for the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club.
"These licence plates make a special Christmas gift for any Rider fan, and are a great way to celebrate the soon-to-be Grey Cup champions," Minister responsible for SGI Tim McMillan said. "Not only do the plates give fans another way to show their Rider Pride, they also help the team financially."
After covering the production costs and administrative fees from the Rider plates, SGI provides net revenues to the Roughriders.
Rider plates are available through any SGI motor licence issuer in the province at a cost of $50 plus GST. For fans wanting a personalized Rider licence plate there is an additional cost of $75 plus GST, for a total of $125 plus GST.
Existing personalized licence plates that have five characters or less can be moved to a Rider plate for the Rider plate fee of $50 plus GST, plus a $20 plate replacement charge.
More information on ordering Rider licence plates is available at www.sgi.sk.ca.
Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI) is the province's self-sustaining auto insurance fund. SGI operates 21 claims centres and five salvage centres across Saskatchewan with a head office in Regina. SGI also works with a network of more than 400 motor licence issuers across the province.
