North Carolina Courage, Charles & Colvard Announce Fan-Driven NWSL Championship Ring Selection

January 21, 2020 - National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) - North Carolina Courage News Release

CARY, N.C. - In conjunction with official jewelry sponsor Charles & Colvard Ltd., the North Carolina Courage are giving fans an unprecedented opportunity to choose the design of the team's 2019 NWSL Championship ring and be entered for a chance to win a ring themselves.

Beginning on Thursday, fans can visit to vote on which of the two Charles & Colvard ring designs they prefer. By voting, one lucky participant will win an authentic ring, to be received in April during the Courage's 2020 season opener - which the winner will receive four free on-field tickets to - as well as a $300 Charles & Colvard gift certificate. Fans will have from Jan. 23-Feb. 9 to cast their vote in what is believed to be the first-ever fan-driven championship ring selection process in American sports history.

"Charles & Colvard is the perfect partner as we work collaboratively to create our 2019 NWSL Championship rings for the Courage," North Carolina Football Club President & General Manager Curt Johnson said. "Last year's championship ring was outstanding, and I'm thrilled about the chance to work with our terrific fans on what this year's ring looks like thanks to this one-of-a-kind opportunity with Charles & Colvard."

The Courage made history in 2019 by becoming the first team in NWSL history to win a league title on its home field, as it defeated the Chicago Red Stars 4-0 in front of a club-record 10,227 fans at Sahlen's Stadium at WakeMed Soccer Park for its second championship in as many years.

"It is our honor and privilege to again celebrate the successes and dedication of the back-to-back NWSL champions with a commemorative moissanite championship ring," said Suzanne Miglucci, President and CEO of Charles & Colvard. "We can't wait to see which brilliant design the fans select for their champions!"
