Closing Bid: $3,999.91
You are bidding on the game sweater worn by Toronto Maple Leafs captain John Tavares during the Maple Leafs 'Next Gen Game' played at Scotiabank Arena on Wednesday, March 29th, 2023 vs the Florida Panthers. The Maple Leafs introduced these 'Flipside' alternate sweaters last season, being the first reversible sweater in North American professional sports. The unique sweater, created in partnership with Justin Bieber, drew house, NHL and adidas, reimagines the Leafs classic sweater for the next generation of fans. 100 per cent of funds raised from this sweater will benefit MLSE Foundation and House of Hockey. House of Hockey is a free summer-long ball hockey league by the Maple Leafs and drew house that gives youth facing barriers equipment, coaching, mentorship and access to play. House of Hockey is a direct response to the needs identified in this year's Change The Game Research Project - an annual study of youth sports in Canada conducted by MLSE Foundation. More than half of participants cited that they are not actively participating in sport due to income level, lack of resources and ability. As a result, House of Hockey looks to create opportunities to play beyond the league itself with donations being made to get hockey sticks and equipment into more local communities, expanding the movement and inspiring the next generation. To learn more about how fans can represent our house and get involved with House of Hockey, visit LeafsHouse.ca. JT's size 56 Canadian Made Adidas Prime Green 'Flipside' sweater may display light game wear and will come signed by Justin Bieber, whose drew house brand collaborated with the Maple Leafs on the initiative. A letter of authenticity will be provided. *Please expect a delay in the Justin Bieber autograph/authentication process. An MLSE representitve will be in contact with each winner upon conclusion of the Auction with an update. We appreciate your support!
