RiverKings unveil new colors, logo

SOUTHAVEN, Miss. – The Mississippi RiverKings, the longest continually operating professional sports franchise in the greater Memphis area, officially unveiled their new primary logo and colors this morning at the Landers Center. The team also displayed their new secondary logos and jerseys for the upcoming 2015-16 season.

“This was a change we had discussed over the course of the last 18 months and it’s very exciting to get the new mark into the community,” RiverKings Director of Business Operations David Schmoll said. “We had such a great response from our throwback jerseys in 2012-13 that when we sat down to really discuss the rebrand, the black and gold color scheme was something we kept coming back to. We wanted to honor the long history of hockey in the Mid-South while also creating a timeless logo that will stand the test of time.”

The RiverKings, who will begin their 24th season in the Mid-South on October 23, are returning to their roots by using gold, black and white as their primary colors. The new logo, shown below, utilizes an "M" in front of a shield, with the word RiverKings shimmering across the front in a banner similar to the team's original logo. Sitting on top of the shield is a crown as the RiverKings embrace the royal aspect of the team's name. 

The new logo pays homage to the team's original logo, which used yellow, black, white and silver. The original logo was an "M" under a crown with RiverKings underneath in a banner format. The RiverKings have had the turtle as their primary logo, with several minor alterations, since 2001.

Merchandise featuring the new logo is available at the "Locker Room" Merchandise store on the first floor of the Landers Center. During the summer the store is open by request by calling 662-342-1755. Merchandise is also available on the team's online store at riverkings.com. Fans can preorder new team jerseys either in person at the RiverKings office, online through the team store, or by calling the RiverKings front office at 662-342-1755.
