GREEN BAY, WIS. (AP) - Lockout or not, the Green Bay Packers will receive their Super Bowl rings in a June 16 ceremony at Lambeau Field.

Although contact between players and team officials generally is prohibited during the league’s ongoing work stoppage, the team says the NFL granted a special exemption allowing it to hold the ceremony.

In a statement posted on the Packers‘ website, president and CEO Mark Murphy says the team is excited to “celebrate all the hard work that went into the championship.”
