The Winnipeg Jets, in conjunction with the province of Manitoba, have announced a new run of Winnipeg Jets specialty licence plates being printed to meet demand. Along with the additional Jets licence plates being made available, motorcycle owners will also be able to purchase the Jets specialty plates.
“The response to the original offering of Winnipeg Jets’ plates was overwhelming,” said Swan. “Jets fans are truly passionate about their team. An additional 5,000 Jet plates will soon be available to these fans who wish to display their hockey loyalties.”
The additional Winnipeg Jets plates plus the new specialty motorcycle licence plates will be available to Manitobans on Friday, April 19 at more than 300 Autopac brokers and Service Centres across the province. Motorcycle owners will now have a variety of plate options available to them: Winnipeg Jets, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, veterans and Winnipeg Goldeyes, with fire fighter motorcycle plates available later this summer. The cost of the motorcycle plates will be $70, with $30 of that fee going towards the Winnipeg Jets True North Foundation, Winnipeg Blue Bomber Football Club, Winnipeg Goldeyes’ Field of Dreams Foundation, Manitoba Fallen Fire Fighters Memorial and the Manitoba Firefighters Burn Fund.
“We anticipate very positive response to the motorcycle specialty plate,” said Swan. “We recognize that motorcycle owners also wish to display their favourite licence plate. That opportunity is now available.”
