GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson today joined the Detroit Lions, Pistons, Red Wings and Tigers representatives to announce four new license plates featuring the logos of one of the teams. The net proceeds will benefit the team's charitable foundation.

Benson, alongside Lions legend Herman Moore, Pistons legend Earl Cureton, Red Wings legend Chris Osgood and Tigers legend Al Kaline, made the announcement at Little Caesars Arena.

“In Michigan, we love our sports teams, and motorists now will be able to proudly display the logo of the Lions, Pistons, Red Wings or Tigers on their license plate at home and on the road,” Benson said. “Buying a plate also will support the teams’ charitable efforts promoting the well-being of our children.”

The plates can be ordered at, by mail or at any Secretary of State office. $25 of the $35 purchase fee and the entire $10 renewal fee each year will go to that team's charitable foundation, which includes:

  • Detroit Lions Charities
  • Detroit Pistons Foundation
  • Detroit Red Wings Foundation
  • Detroit Tigers Foundation

The plates will be issued with a random combination of letters and numbers, but those who want to personalize their plates can check if the custom configuration is available at

Pro sports team plates are limited to five digits.
