Seattle Storm fans will be able to show their love for the team with a specialized license plate.

Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bill Monday -- House Bill 2062 -- to create the state's first plate for a professional women's sports team.

“The Seattle Storm is elated by the Washington State Legislature’s bi-partisan vote to establish the state’s first license plate for a professional women’s sports team, an effort championed by Lieutenant Governor Cyrus Habib and endorsed by Governor Jay Inslee,” said Seattle Storm CEO and General Manager Alisha Valavanis. “Staunch advocates of expanding opportunities for women and girls, the Storm is grateful for the legislature’s recognition and partnership.”

Net proceeds will fund youth leadership and sports programs.

Fans who want to purchase a special license plate will have to pay a $40 fee and subsequent $30 renewal fee in addition to normal fees and taxes required for vehicle registration.

The team will announce a celebration event at a later date when the specialized license plate is available for purchase.
