Packers will reunite June 16 for Super Bowl ring ceremony

Lockout or not, the Green Bay Packers will receive their Super Bowl rings during a June 16 ceremony at Lambeau Field.

Although contact between players and team officials generally is prohibited during the NFL's ongoing work stoppage, the team said Thursday that the league granted a special exemption allowing the ceremony to be held.

"We're looking forward to having an evening for the players, coaches and organization to recognize the victory in Super Bowl XLV," Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy said in a statement posted on the team's official website. "It was an extraordinary season, and the players earned their rings in very exciting fashion. We're going to celebrate all the hard work that went into the championship. We're excited for the evening."

The Packersdefeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 31-25, on Feb. 6 to win Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, Texas.
