Auction Underway for Autographed MNT Rainbow-Number Jerseys to Benefit You Can Play Project

CHICAGO (June 27, 2017) – The U.S. Men’s National Team autographed, game-issued and pride-inspired rainbow numbered jerseys from the June match vs. Venezuela are now available via an online auction with all proceeds going to benefit the You Can Play Project.

In recognition of LGBTQ month in June, U.S. Soccer, along with the U.S. National Soccer Team Players Association and the Women's National Team Players Association partnered with the You Can Play Project, an organization dedicated to ensuring equality, respect and safety for all athletes, coaches, and fans without regard for sexual orientation and/or gender identity.

The online charity auction launched today, Tuesday, June 27 and will last eight days, concluding on Wednesday, July 5. The bidding will start at $300 for each jersey. 

The U.S. players wore the pride inspired jerseys during the U.S. MNT game vs. Venezuela on June 3 in a friendly played at Rio Tinto Stadium in Sandy, Utah.

The U.S. WNT jersey auction will take place soon. The U.S. Women wore the rainbow-numbered jerseys in its two June friendly matches, first vs. Sweden on June 8, in Gothenburg, and again vs. Norway on June 11 in Sandefjord.

In addition, fans can purchase customized jerseys with the rainbow numbers through ussoccerstore.com, and a special “One Nation. One Team.” hat with rainbow lettering is also on sale.

Proceeds from all three opportunities will be donated to the You Can Play Project.

As a long-time supporter of the LGBTQ community, U.S. Soccer promoted the hashtag #OneNation in support of the victims of the Pulse Night Club shooting in June of 2016. U.S. MNT captain Michael Bradley wore a special rainbow armband with the One Nation inscription, and auctioned off the armband and his jersey

Panini America is the official trading card partner of U.S. Soccer. Through Panini Authentic, the company’s memorabilia division, these match-issued and autographed U.S. Soccer jerseys have been authenticated, hologrammed and packaged for this special auction.
