LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Detroit sports fans can now represent their professional teams while on the go.

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder signed a law on Monday allowing license plates that bear the logos of the Detroit Tigers, Pistons, Red Wings and Lions.

Revenue from the plates will go toward charity funds run by the four teams. Some causes supported are free game tickets for low-income children, youth volunteering and healthy living.

Snyder says residents can “display their support while donating to a worthy cause.”

The Secretary of State is required to set up a system for issuing the plates by February 2019.
