NewsSports UNBC Timberwolves to sell customized, historic Indigenous jerseys SHARE ON: Brendan Pawliw, staff Friday, Nov. 19th, 2021 (Photo courtesy of UNBC Athletics) Fresh off the release of the first-of-its-kind Indigenous jersey design, the UNBC Timberwolves took another step towards creating meaningful opportunities and strengthening relationships with the Indigenous community. The T-Wolves along with apparel supplier Kahunaverse, have announced the creation of an online shop, where anyone, anywhere can order a completely customizable jersey, featuring the art and design of Gitxsan artist Trevor Angus. Director of Athletics & Recreation, Loralyn Murdoch suggests this was a great step to invite those in our region, and beyond, to don this landmark jersey. “We couldn’t be more excited to be able to respond to so many requests about where people can purchase a jersey. This will be the first time we have ever had an opportunity for our fans to order a custom jersey and I am so excited that this Indigenous jersey is going to be accessible to all. “ The new jerseys will be available in the soccer and basketball designs, and allow customers to pick the size and jersey number of the custom uniform. Upon the release of the logo and jersey design, the Timberwolves received countless emails and messages from around the region and across Canada, requesting the jerseys be made available for purchase. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will be split between Lheidli T’enneh youth programming, and Indigenous student-athlete awards. “This project is more than a jersey. From the onset it has been about continuing to build relationships with the hopes of giving back to Indigenous youth and student-athletes,” said Murdoch. “The establishment of an award for Indigenous Student-Athletes and providing opportunities for the Lheidli T’enneh youth was discussed and enthusiastically supported from the onset of this initiative.” To purchase a jersey, click here.
