Basketball Licence Plates

Whether it’s at the school, club or post-secondary level, playing for fun or for a championship title, basketball promotes physical fitness, teamwork and sportsmanship. Manitobans of all ages across the province enjoy the sport. Now there’s a specialty licence plate to celebrate and support it.

Where can I get the plates?

You can visit any Autopac agent after March 20 to purchase your Basketball Manitoba plates.


The cost of the plates is $70 per vehicle with $30 from every sale going to Basketball Manitoba’s Basketball for Life Fund. This fund supports Manitoba’s provincial team and Centre for Performance programs and provides inner city children and new Canadians with access to the sport.

What vehicles qualify

All passenger vehicles such as cars, trucks, vans, motorcycles, mopeds and farm trucks qualify for Basketball Manitoba licence plates. Commercial trucks and all other non-passenger vehicles do not qualify.

I already own a specialty licence plate. Can I still purchase the Basketball Manitoba plates?

Yes. If you own a different specialty licence plate you are still eligible to purchase the Basketball Manitoba plates. You can even change the plates in between seasons at no extra charge.

However, because the plate numbers on the front and rear of your vehicle must match at all times, you will not be allowed to use two different specialty plates simultaneously (i.e. you cannot have a Winnipeg Jets plate on the front of your vehicle and a Basketball Manitoba plate on the rear).

Use them with your vehicle(s) or as a keepsake

If you are the registered owner of one or more vehicles that qualify, you can apply for Basketball Manitoba licence plates for all of them. Only one set of Basketball Manitoba plates will be issued per vehicle.

Customers wanting to use the plates as a souvenir keepsake can still purchase them at a cost of $70.

Can these plates be personalized?

No – Similar to other specialty licence plates, the Basketball Manitoba plates are a pre-established set of letters and numbers.
