CHICAGO (Sept. 1, 2015) – The U.S. Women’s National Team’s autographed game-worn jerseys from the Victory Tour match against Costa Rica on Aug. 19 are now available via an online auction with all proceeds going to benefit the Chattanooga Heroes Fund.
Before and during the USA’s match against Costa Rica on Aug. 19 at Finley Stadium, U.S. Soccer and Women’s National Team players honored the victims of the July 16 tragedy in Chattanooga in which five servicemen were killed. There players were led out on the field by members of the military, there was a moment of silence before the match and the players wore black armbands in remembrance.
Now, with the support of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team Players Association, the jerseys from all 23 players that were on the 2015 Women’s World Cup winning team who were in Chattanooga for the match are up for auction online on the U.S. Soccer Federation auction page. The Chattanooga Heroes Fund supports the families of those who lost their lives in the tragic shootings on July 16th as well as those who were wounded.
The auction concludes on the afternoon of Sept. 21, with the bidding opening at $200 for each jersey.
