Sporting KC players, coaching staff presented with 111-diamond 2013 MLS Cup rings | SIDELINE
As they say, "To the victors go the spoils."
On Sunday, "the spoils" came in the shape of 10-karat white gold rings, complete with 94 white round brilliant-cut diamonds and 17 blue round brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing approximately 57 grams altogether.
These were, of course, Sporting Kansas City's 2013 MLS Cup championship rings, which were presented to all returning Sporting KC players, coaching and front-office staff in a ceremony prior to kickoff of the team's 2-0 victory over the Columbus Crew.
It's the largest MLS Cup championship ring ever made. It's also got the most diamonds of any MLS Cup championship ring. Those factors combined equate to just one thing: a whole lot of bling and shine.
Additionally, a number of fans were chosen in a raffle system to take part in the ceremony and deliver the championship rings to players and coaches during the on-field ceremony.
