River Kings unveil logo and special season ticket rates for 15th Anniversary season

SOUTHAVEN , MS — The 2006-2007 season is going to be a very special one for the Memphis River Kings of the Central Hockey League. This upcoming season will mark the 15th season that the River Kings have been playing hockey in the Mid-South and today the team unveiled a special 15th Anniversary logo and details on special season ticket rates.

The River Kings’ special 15th Anniversary logo is a traditional classic banner style that features the “MRK” insignia in the center surrounded by “Memphis River Kings-15th Anniversary” on its outer edge. The years “1992” and “2006” are included in the attached banner. The logo will be featured prominently in all of the team’s publications, artwork and jerseys during the 2006-2007 season.

The colors in the logo link the past to the present. The black represents the primary color of the team’s uniforms from
1992-2000; the gold represents the gold color from then and now, and the green color represents the team’s current primary color.

A special 15th anniversary jersey that would be used as a third jersey is also in the works for the upcoming season as well.

“As far as the jersey, we’re working on something that I think both more recent fans and those that have supported us for a long while will both enjoy,” River Kings Director of Merchandise Michael Rice said.

The special season ticket rates that are in conjunction with the anniversary are up to an $88 savings from the regular season ticket rates and up to a $165 savings from walk-up prices. The 2006-2007 special anniversary season ticket prices range from $512 for Blue Level (along the glass); $392 for Gold Level; $336 for Green Level; $256 for Red Level and $192 for Orange Level. In order to take advantage of the special rates, fans need to order and pay in full for their tickets by June 15, 2006 . After June 15, the ticket prices will go to their regular rates for the 2006-2007 season: $600, $464, $400, $304 and $240 respectively.

Season ticket holders also get other great benefits like team email updates, two exclusive season ticket holder parties, the first right to purchase playoff seats, an exclusive gift, a season ticket holder hotline and unused ticket redemption nights.

The River Kings are also offering a Half-Season Plan for Gold, Green and Red seating levels at the special 15th Anniversary rates that will be priced at $232, $200 and $152, respectively. The June 15, 2006 deadline also applies to the prices for the Half-Season Plan.

“We are excited that this is the River Kings 15th season,” Director of Ticket Sales Jody O’Donnell said. “These special ticket rates are a great way to celebrate the achievement and get fans excited about the season.”

This season will also mark the 15th anniversary of the current Central Hockey League. The River Kings are one of four teams that remain from that inaugural season of 1992-1993. The others are the Oklahoma City Blazers, Tulsa Oilers and Wichita Thunder. The River Kings are the longest running professional sports franchise in the Mid-South.
