9 October 2011
The online auction to raise funds in memory of Sir Bobby Robson – with amazing lots involving Lionel Messi, Barcelona, Jose Mourinho, Pele, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and many, many more – is now live.
You can go straight to the auction home page here (there are more than 130 lots, and growing, so go through them).
For background, read how Barcelona came on board to give exclusive access to training with Messi, Guardiola and Co.
Last month we reported how Mourinho has donated his World Coach of the Year award from 2010 to the auction.
Chelsea’s Andre Villas-Boas has given a donation (link here), as has Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson (link here) and Leicester’s Sven Goran Eriksson, a former England manager, as Sir Bobby was. And we’ve also reported how the England and India cricket teams, and Wolves, are also involved.
The ‘money can’t buy’ prizes will be among more than 100 available in an online auction between 8-23 October from a huge range of sporting and non-sporting benefactors.
Sportingintelligence is proud to be among the supporters of the auction.
