A Message from the Wright County License Center:
The Minnesota Vikings are the first professional team in Minnesota to release a new plate design. These plates will be available for the public to purchase in January 2024. The Vikings were quick to get their design started, but additional Minnesota professional teams are planned to release their designs in the future. There will be an annual contribution fee associated with the any of the Minnesota Pro-Sports Team plates. The Vikings plate contribution will go to the Minnesota Vikings Foundation. Additional new plate designs coming in January include the much anticipated “black-out” plate, Lions Club International plate, and Missing & Murdered Indigenous Relatives plate. As of right now, the License Center is expected to receive both the Vikings plate and the “black-out” plate to have on hand for the January release. The state determines what plates offices are allowed to have on hand and what plates need to be ordered. Due to expected popularity of both designs, these plates are supposed to be available in offices across the state in January. These plates can be personalized for an additional fee. Customers with existing personalized plates can also transfer their personalization to a different plate design as long as character limits are not exceeded for that plate type.
