Halifax, NS - Canada's National Junior team will wear NIKE Hockey Black 'Fan jerseys' for the first time, at their first game of the 2003 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship on December 26 versus Sweden.

The Canadian Hockey Association launched four styles of jerseys for Canada's National teams on , which have been worn by all of Canada's National teams for both the 2001-2002 season including the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, and the 2002-2003 season. One of the four jerseys launched in 2001 was the 'fourth Fan jersey' ' which when originally launched, was not intended to be worn by any of Canada's teams.

The CHA and Canada's National Junior team policy committee made the decision to honour hockey fans in both Halifax and Sydney as well as all across Canada, for their support of Canada's Men's and Women's hockey teams during the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City and for the overwhelming fan support they have shown for the hosting of the 2003 IIHF World Juniors.

The Black fan jersey, made by NIKE Hockey, a premier sponsor of the CHA and sponsor of the IIHF, is of identical design to the red 'heritage jersey' worn by Canada's Men's and Women's Olympic teams, with the heritage logo on the front, red and white stripes on the sleeves and bottom and the CHA logo on each shoulder, but in black.
The Black Fan jerseys that Canada's 22 players will be wearing for their game on December 26 vs. Sweden will be auctioned individually on-site at the RBC World Junior Hockey FANFEST in the Halifax World Trade and Convention Centre. All funds raised from the auction will go directly to 2003 World Junior event.

For information on the public charity auction of the black Fan jerseys, visit the RBC Fanfest section at www.canadianhockey.ca. Those wanting to bid on the auctions can not do so online, and must attend RBC World Junior Hockey Fanfest in person. RBC World Junior Fanfest is open daily, Dec. 26-January 5 (CLOSED JAN 1,2003), NOON TO 11.00PM. Tickets are available at the door, entrance is through Duke and Argyle Street doors in Halifax at the World Trade Centre.
