Golden Knights license plates delayed over design

Golden Knights fans will have to wait a little longer to show support for their team on a license plate. Officials with the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles say the department has gone back-and-forth with the team for six months over the design of the plates. Once Knights submit a design, it will only take a few weeks for the DMV to manufacture, distribute and solicit sales for the plates. The plate’s Knights insignia, logos and messages may only take up roughly one-third of the specialty plates, leaving enough room for “Nevada” at the top and the license number. The plates will cost $37, followed by a $10 annual renewal fee.

Knights success far exceeds LVCVA’s tourism goals

Several months ago, the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority set out to market the city as the sports capital of the world. With the addition of the Golden Knights and the Raiders, LVCVA saw the perfect opportunity to do so. The Knights’ success and current Stanley Cup playoff run has resulted in a marketing marriage with Las Vegas that has been far more successful than anyone could have imagined. This season, the Knights have managed to unite the community and made hockey fans around the country take notice. “The Knights, in my mind, really put the exclamation point that we’re the sports capital of the world, not only what they’ve done on the ice in this historic season but how they brought the community together.” Lisa Motley, director of sports marketing and special events for the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority Professional sports have been a staple for Las Vegas for decades with championship boxing matches, PGA golf tour events and the National Finals Rodeo. But big-league teams kept their distance from Nevada, due to lingering fears of sports betting somehow influencing games. “Las Vegas stands for something much more extensive and expansive now than what it once did” David Carter, executive director of the University of Southern California’s Marshall Sports Business Institute
