Chelsea Foundation and our global charity partner Plan International have come together to launch a shirt auction to raise funds in support of families in India.
Over a year on and the coronavirus pandemic continues to have a devastating impact all over the world and India is in the grip of a second wave.
With cases rising rapidly in India there is a shortage of hospital beds, oxygen and basic medicine and for children, especially girls, in the most vulnerable communities, the challenge could not be greater.
To help combat this, Chelsea Foundation and Plan have joined forces to auction match-issued shirts from our men’s 2020/21 UEFA Champions League campaign to raise money for the appeal.
Funds raised from the Matchwornshirts.com auction will go towards supporting the most vulnerable families in India, including meeting immediate nutritional needs, providing hospitals with PPE and other essential equipment, and helping children continue their education.
The auction launches today (Friday) and will run for a total of seven days before closing on Friday 28 May.
Match-issued shirts from the group and knockout stages of our 2020/21 campaign will be available to bid on.
Mason Mount, Thiago Silva and N’Golo Kante shirts issued for our quarter-final against Porto are available to bid for along with those of Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech from our last-16 clash with Atletico Madrid.
There are also other shirts to bid for from our group-stage fixtures against Krasador, Sevilla and Rennes. All shirts will be signed by the relevant player and professionally disinfected prior to sending to the winning bidders.
You can simply register and place your bids by visiting www.matchwornshirt.com/club/chelsea and perhaps you will be the lucky winner of one of these unique Chelsea shirts!
