Sports celebrities support German Football Ambassador charity auction

Deutscher Fußball Botschafter e.V.

On November 4th, 2019, the German Football Ambassador (Deutscher Fußball Botschafter e.V.) and United Charity will launch their first joint online auction to support social projects. A selection of personal exhibits from the “Who’s Who” of the sports world will be available at the auction. The founder of the non-profit association Roland Bischof: “The willingness of the sports stars to support us in this was enormous. This helps us tremendously in our social commitments. A big thank you for that”.

Football players like Marc-André ter Stegen, Sami Khedira or Loris Karius donated their jerseys, Sebastian Rode or Amin Younes their shoes, Torsten Frings a pair of sunglasses of his limited edition of 250, Jürgen Klopp a signed photo and Thomas Helmer organised the signatures of his guests like Jürgen Kohler, Alexander Zorniger, Volker Finke or Marcel Reif. Lionel Messi’s jersey will certainly also be highly regarded. But football enthusiasts of other sports also get involved.

Olympic ski champion Maria Höfl-Riesch donated her national team jacket, Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg his limited and unsaleable illustrated book “FINALLY”, Dirk Nowitzki his custom-made shoes from his farewell match with the German national team, boxing legend Ulli Wegner his biography and NHL star Leon Draisaitl donated several items from his LD29 collection, including his Brayce bracelet. All pieces are of course personally signed. There is also the opportunity to meet the former DTM Champion and Formula 1 driver Pascal Wehrlein, who invites you to the Formula E race with a private pit stop in Berlin. Or the singer RI.VIGI, who recently donated her song “Compass” as soundtrack for the new football ambassador charity video.

Furthermore, the German Football Ambassador is also participating and donating an original print on canvas by the French artist Régis Chambion (“Heldengalerie”) with motif and signature by Oliver Kahn, as well as a rare unique piece from women’s football: an unsaleable and signed original jersey of the Retro Team Germany, which was produced only for the players. The team members are former world and European champions from Birgit Prinz to last year’s nominated football ambassador Petra Landers.

The football ambassador auction, which will take place from 04.11.-04.12.2019, will be implemented on the United Charity portal. Anyone can bid under:
