Lions Guaranteeing a Win Sunday

BC Lions Football Club president and CEO Dennis Skulsky made a historic announcement this afternoon by guaranteeing a win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Sunday afternoon when the teams meet at BC Place presented by Save-On-Foods. It’s the first time in the club’s 61 seasons that it has publicly announced a guaranteed win.

“The Saskatchewan Roughriders have challenged this community,” said Skulsky. “They have purchased billboards promoting their team and they’re hosting a ‘Rider fan party and rally in our backyard. We’re a very good football team and we’re here to proudly represent this city and this province. The best way to do that is to win on Sunday and we guarantee that will happen.”

If the Lions fall short of their goal, all fans in attendance can redeem their game ticket from Sunday’s tilt for a ticket of equal value to one of the club’s four remaining regular season home games.

The guarantee comes almost one month after the club announced that additional seats in the upper bowl of BC Place were being made available to accommodate the demand for tickets to Sunday’s game.

“I know our fans will bring the Roar Factor on Sunday and when you combine that with the hard work and determination of our coaching staff and players, it gives everyone in our organization the confidence that together we can achieve great things,” added Skulsky.

The BC Lions (5-3) take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-2) at BC Place on Sunday,August 24th at 4:00 pm.

Pfftt...who cares! If Benavides says something it carries a lot more weight than their president.

Scruffy, you don't understand marketing. The Riders will bring in the biggest crowd of the year. If they win, fans will be entertained and they will come back. If they lose, they have a ticket to come back to another game free of charge and spend their beer, eats and souvenir money and perhaps be entertained enough to come back for a 3rd game. Brilliant move!

No sweat they'll win. The media assures me that the Riders who score one touchdown per game are the CFL's top dog and if you don't believe that malark
ey they tell you "you're stupid".
