For those who have always wanted to see their own name on the Canadian Football League’s biggest prize, there’s now an opportunity to do so.

The CFL announced Monday that it will allow fans the “unique opportunity” to have their names etched on a new base for the Grey Cup, called the Grey Cup Fan Base.

For a fee, fans can have their names inscribed on the new base, which will hold the Grey Cup trophy at all public appearances.

The base will be made from Canadian maple and aluminum.

“The Grey Cup Fan Base is a great innovative idea that is supported by the players as a way to connect our passionate fans even closer to our game,” said Solomon Elimimian, president of the CFL Player’s Association.
