“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.

The NFL has cleared the way for members of the Super Bowl-champion Green Bay Packers to receive their championship rings in a ceremony in the Lambeau Field Atrium on June 16.

During the lockout, teams are not allowed to have any contact with their players but the league granted an exemption for the ring ceremony.

“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 Packers.com on Thursday. “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.”

It will be a private ceremony, team spokesman Aaron Popkey said on Friday.
