United were the first football club to form a partnership with UNICEF, back in 1999, and the link-up has positively changed the lives of children around the world since. In over 20 years of collaboration, United for UNICEF has raised more than £5 million through activities such as gala dinners at Old Trafford.
Earlier this week, the Reds committed a donation of £50,000 for the fund and pledged the net proceeds of the Manchester United Foundation Matchday Lottery at our last Premier League home game of the season, against Brentford.
Collette Roche, Manchester United’s Chief Operating Officer, said: “Manchester United is proud of our long relationship with UNICEF and, with such huge humanitarian challenges affecting children in many parts of the world today, the need is greater than ever for the club and our fans to rally behind this vital cause.”
The auction will open at www.matchwornshirt.com as soon as Saturday’s game kicks off.
In addition, you can donate to UNICEF’s Children’s Emergency Fund here.
