(WKBW release) New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Monday announced a New York Giants Super Bowl XLVI victory license plate to honor the championship team.

According to a news release:

The plate, available for both passenger and commercial vehicles registered in New York, features the NFL Giants' Big Blue NY logo with the words "Super Bowl XLVI Champions" as well as the official Super Bowl XLVI logo.

"I join all New York Giant fans in congratulating the team and staff, especially native-New Yorker coach Tom Coughlin, on this great Super Bowl victory," Governor Cuomo said in the news release. "We are all very proud of the dedication, hard work and grace under pressure that enabled the Giants to bring the Vince Lombardi Trophy back to New York."

"This has been an amazing run for the Giants," Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) Commissioner Barbara J. Fiala said in the news release. "Giants fans have always worn their hearts on their sleeve. So we are very pleased to offer this commemorative Super Bowl XLVI Champions custom license plate so that they can show their 'Big Blue' loyalty and championship pride on their vehicles."

The New York Giants Super Bowl XLVI Champions custom license plate can be ordered in any DMV office, online at www.dmv.ny.gov or by calling the Custom Plates Office at (518) 402-4838, Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.
