Roads Minister, Stephen Hammond said: “Many football fans want to show their support for their team in all aspects of their life, and displaying a number plate that links them to their club is a fun way to do this. As a lifelong fan of Southampton I’ll be watching England’s games with pride. While these numbers have already been sold, there are a host of World Cup numbers available to buy from DVLA from £399.”
