Shirts worn by the Croatian national football team during their Nations League match against Denmark in Zagreb recently were sold for 31,919 euros at an online auction organised for the Vatreno Srce Foundation, the Croatian Football Federation (HNS) said on Monday. 

All the Croatian national team members who were on the team sheet for the match against Denmark at Maksimir stadium gave their shirts and signed them for the auction conducted on the website: https://www.matchwornshirt.com/team/croatia

As expected, Luka Modrić’s shirt fetched the most with a bidder in the US paying €8,003 for it. It was also the first time the newly-designed Croatia shirt was worn after it was released in September. 

Ivan Perišić’s signed shirt was the next most popular, being sold to a bidder from Italy for €2.440). Mateo Kovačić (€1.727), Joško Gvardiol (€1.711), Lovro Majer (€1.608), Mislav Oršić (€1.571) and Marcelo Brozović (€1.463) also all attracted over four-digit figures, HNS said.

They raised €48,909 auctioning their shirts online from their Euro 2020 Round of 16 match against Spain and overall now have collected €212,332. Luka Modrić’s shirt against Spain went for €16,000. 

All shirts are professionally disinfected by exposure to ultraviolet radiation, which means that all possible traces of viruses, bacteria and DNA material have been removed from them, but all other elements of the worn shirt have been preserved, including the embroidered flags of Croatia and Denmark and the date of the match on the front of the shirt.

The Vatreno Srce Foundation was founded and is run by Croatian national team members and management, through which they have been helping children and young people for years, such as donating funds to the Clinic for Children’s Diseases and the Korak u život campaign.
