Football Number Plates - Who are the Biggest Spenders?

Over the years some of the more special team related Football Number Plates have made huge sums of money selling at DVLA auctions and privately, with WEST HAM, ARSENAL, VILLA heading up the ‘most expensive football numberplates’ league table making £58320, £46656, and £45360 respectively. Some of the lower values down to the fact they were sold over 25 years ago when prices were cheaper.

In the Autumn of 2006, CarReg sold 1 UTD on behalf of a Manchester based businessman and Manchester United season ticket holder Charles Wright who had several young grandsons at the time who were also United mad. He couldn’t risk them all fighting over the registration when they grew up, so opted to sell it while he could having had many years enjoyment from it, with the registration number taking pride of place on numerous nice cars that he had owned. Needless to say he felt very special with much of the attention the registration attracted on match days near the ‘Theatre of Dreams’, Old Trafford.

If you are football mad and your team holds a special place in your heart, then a private reg incorporating something relating to your beloved team could be just what you’re after!

It’s not possible to make every team name in full on a vehicle licence plate, but we have ideas for almost every team in the top 2 divisions on our Football Number Plates webpage.
