To keep the gratitude going, Minnesota United FC is holding an online Shirts Off Their Back auction for match-worn jerseys from the team’s Fan Appreciation Day match. Beginning on Monday, October 9, fans will be able to bid on jerseys worn by players when they faced Sporting Kansas City in the regular season’s final home match on Saturday, October 7. The first part of the auction will run through noon on Monday, October 16, and then a second set of jerseys will go up on Monday, October 23 with bids closing on those jerseys at noon on Monday, October 30.
MNUFC will donate all proceeds from the online auction to The Sanneh Foundation. The Sanneh Foundation serves the holistic youth development needs of the increasingly diverse Twin Cities metro area. Their mission is to empower youth by supporting and promoting educational attainment through in-school and after-school support, improve lives by providing programs that strengthen physical health and social and emotional development, and unite communities by advancing diversity, equity and community well-being.
