SOUTHAVEN, Miss.- While Tuesday, January 8th may seem like an ordinary night in the Mid-South, the Landers Center in Southaven, Miss. is sure to be rocking! The Mississippi RiverKings celebrate Elvis Presley’s 78th birthday as they take on the Louisiana IceGators at 7:05 p.m.
The RiverKings will honor the King of Rock and Roll with custom jerseys designed for that night’s game only. The "Aloha"-themed jerseys will be sold at live auction immediately following the game. The RiverKings are one of a few organizations licensed this year by Elvis Presley Enterprises to play official Elvis Presley music throughout their sporting events.
