The 6th annual Draft A Rider sponsor selection event took place Tuesday night inside the Harvard Broadcasting Green and White Lounge at Mosaic Stadium, where 14 players were selected by 14 sponsors for the season.
The sponsors will receive brand exposure via the SaskTel MaxTron and auxiliary keystone video screen when their player is featured.
The player and sponsor are also linked on Riderville.com and many players form relationships outside of the game, making tremendous business connections for life after football.
