Thank you for helping us roll out the next U license plate design

As the U prepared to debut a new license plate next year for Florida residents, we added a fan component as part of our overall selection process. We invited all ’Canes near and far to raise a hand and be part of the selection process. The new design will be made available to Florida residents in spring 2021!

The Selection Process

We started with eight license plate designs. In mid-July, we asked our ’Canes to submit first-round picks to trim down the competition and get us closer to our winning design. Thank you to the 13,000 Canes fans who submitted a fan vote during the Pride Your Ride campaign.
