Jersey Auction
Posted on Apr 22 2013 8:15 am

Philly Women's Rugby needs your help to make our new jerseys one-of-a-kind. Inspired by PWRFC circa 1983, our next set of jerseys will pay homage to all of the past players, coaches, friends, and family that helped make us what we are today. That is why we are giving each of you the chance to put your name on one of our new jerseys. At Friends and Family Day we will hold a silent auction during which our supporters can bid on their favorite numbered jersey. The highest bidder for each jersey will have his or her name (or a friend's or favorite coach's name) printed on the front and the sleeve. See attached image for a mock up (not biased at all). The final set of jerseys will be ready by the fall season. Come out to a match this fall and see how your legacy continues on the arms of the current team!

On Friends and Family Day, bidding will start at $75 and open at 1:00pm and close at 4:00pm. However, you have the option to "buy-it-now" for $200 right here on! Don't give anyone the chance to outbid you for your favorite number. The "buy-it-now" option opens at on April 25th and closes at 5:00pm on May 2nd. Please contact Kate at for more information.
