New - Let Your Villanova Pride Pop!

Buy your own piece of the Pavilion and show off your Nova Pride! For $25, you will receive a Villanova pop socket made out of certified wood from the Pavilion court made in partnership with 1985 Pavilion, LLC. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Villanova University. 

A pop socket connects to the back of almost any mobile device and transforms its capabilities. It's a grip, a stand, an earbud-management system or just a way to let everyone know your favorite team.
