Championship rings available to fans
SOUTHAVEN --- Fans who want to wear a piece of last year's magical Memphis Xplorers championship season have had their wishes granted. For a limited time only, the Memphis Xplorers are making special 2005 ArenaCup Championship rings available to fans.
The rings are being made by Jostens, the same company that made the official rings that players and staff received following the season. A men's and women's ring will be available, with the men's ring selling for $189 and the women's selling for $149. The metal being used in the construction is white lustrium, a chrome and nickel alloy that looks very much like silver.
The rings will feature the ArenaCup logo, the team's 16-3 record as well as the inscriptions "ArenaCup Champions" and "#1 Fan."
The rings need to be ordered through the Xplorers office by July 7. Orders can also be placed during the next two home games, June 17 and 24, at the merchandise stand behind section 106. Fans can then expect their rings to arrive eight weeks after the deadline date. To place your ring order, call the Xplorers office with your ring size at 662-342-1755.
