ABOUT THE TAGS
Select from a variety of license plates from personalized license plates to your favorite Florida professional sports teams and more.
We love our professional sports teams. And one way to show that love is to buy a specialty license plate for the team or sport of your choice.
But did you know that by buying a Florida sports license plate, you are also supporting youth and amateur athletes, as well? Through grants made possible by the sale of these license plates, young athletes are able to gain the tools and experience they need to perhaps become professional athletes one day … and amateur athletes of all ages are given the opportunity to become more well-rounded individuals.
A portion of each tag fee (between $15-$25, depending upon the license) goes either to your team’s designated youth charity, is given out in grants by the Florida Sports Foundation to support sporting events across the state, and helps support the Sunshine State Games and other sports development opportunities. Better news for you is that this extra tag fee is tax deductible! Contact your local tag office to purchase a tag.
Currently, the Florida Sports Foundation is seeking an RFP for its specialty plate tag program, looking to enhance the awareness and growth of the Professional Sports Specialty Plate throughout Florida.
Here are just a few examples of amateur sporting events that your tag fee dollars support in communities across our state:
- AAU Karate National Championships
- AAU Taekwondo National Championships
- USTA National Championship and National Clay Court Championship
- World Baton Twirling Championship and U.S. National Baton Twirling Championship
- South Beach Triathlon
- Northwest Track & Field Classic
- Perfect Game Baseball Championship Series
- XIII CMAS Fin Swimming World Cup 2018
These are often sporting events that don’t draw the big dollars, but they still need our support.
In addition, a portion of the sports license tag fees goes toward supporting major sports events such as: Super Bowl, NFL Pro Bowl, and NHL Hockey. So show your love of sports by supporting your favorite professionals while at the same time supporting youth and amateur athletes across Florida.
