Western United supporters, football kit collectors and football fans in general will have the chance to score a match-worn jersey while supporting a fantastic cause at the same time.
Thanks to Match Worn Shirt, fans can bid on signed, match-worn Western United jerseys from the Isuzu UTE A-League Men squad, with all of the money from the auctions going straight to Mercy Perinatal.
The kits were worn by the players during the match against Adelaide United earlier in February, a match that was part of a special Mercy Perinatal matchday for Western United’s first A-Leagues double header in Melbourne.
Each jersey comes in a specially packed box and includes a certificate of authenticity to verify the product.
The match saw Noah Botic score his first ever professional goal while Aleksandar Prijovic also found the back of the net, making those two kits particularly sought after.
Connor O’Toole and Michael Ruhs both made their Western United debuts in the game, the former from the start and the latter off the bench at AAMI Park.
Ruhs and Alessandro Diamanti’s kits are currently going for the highest price tag, followed by a shirt signed by the whole squad on the day. This option is not match-worn.
Western United has partnered with Match Worn Shirt once before with auctions made available for match-worn jerseys from United’s first ever match in the Liberty A-League Women in November.
A number of Green and Black fans won pieces from their favourite players on that occasion and will now have the opportunity to do so again for the men’s team.
This time around, there will be the added benefit of supporting Club partner Mercy Perinatal by bidding on a jersey.
Mercy Perinatal continues to be an industry leader in pregnancy care and research and strives to continue to improve the lives of women and babies across the world.
Bidding for the jerseys closes at 6pm on Saturday 25 February. Get in quick and place a bid for your favourite player’s jersey to own a special piece of Western United memorabilia and directly support Mercy Perinatal.
