There's about to be a new way for Portland Trail Blazer fans to show off their team pride everywhere they drive.

Governor Kate Brown signed a bill that will create new Trail Blazer license plates into law on Wednesday.

Proceeds from the plate sales will go through the Trail Blazers Foundation, then will be distributed to organizations and programs that support kids in Oregon.

Legendary Blazers announcer Bill Schonely was on hand for Wednesday's signing.

"I look forward to seeing vehicles everywhere driven by Trail Blazer fans proudly showing their pride and their passion. And you can count my wife Dottie and me among those proud Oregonians who will be doing just that when the plates become available," said Bill Schonely.

There's no word yet on when the license plates will be available to buy or what the exact design will be.
