Worn Croatian match shirts fetch €30,000 on online auction

ZAGREB, 15 October 2019 – Croatia is the first national team in the world to donate all worn match shirts from a competitive match for an online charity auction.

The 4-day online auction for worn Croatia match shirts from the EURO 2020 qualifier against Hungary played at Poljud Stadium in Split last Thursday has ended on matchwornshirt.com with more than €30,000 raised. 

The most popular shirt was that of captain and one of the goalscorer on the night, Luka Modrić. A bidder from Japan managed to secure his worn shirt for €6,000. 

Ante Rebić’s worn shirt was the next most expensive, fetching €3,020. It was purchased from a buyer from Hungary. The next two most popular shirts were those of Ivan Rakitić and Mateo Kovačić. Both were purchased by a bidder from the United States for €2,700 and €2,600 respectively. 

Bruno Petković, who scored two goals on the night, saw his worn shirt go for €2,000.

A total of €31,352 was raised, from which 79% will go to the Vatreno Srce Foundation. All successful bidders were from abroad. 

The Vatreno Srce Foundation was founded and is operated by the Croatian national team. For a number of years now, the Croatian team have helped kids and youngsters through the foundation. Last year they donated funds to the Children’s Hospital for the Korak u život campaign.
