#Morethanfootball Action Weeks Highlights

We’re in the last week of the #Morethanfootball action weeks. We would like to thank everyone who has been involved so far in the biggest football movement around the world and encourage those who have not participated so far to show that they too are #Morethanfootball before it’s too late.

Over 80 organisations showed the world this year that they are #Morethanfootball. For those who have not yet participated, we have one more action day left and that is the Sustainability and Climate Change related Action Day. So you can still show everyone this week that your organisation is #Morethanfootball.

Let’s take a look back at the past weeks and action days and see what happened.

Free Fundraiser with MatchWornShirt

This year we welcomed back MatchWornShirt as the official digital fundraising partner of the #Morethanfootball Campaign. MatchWornShirt is an expert in hosting shirt auctions for football clubs and foundations all over the world. 

Dutch club NEC Nijmegen raised €6.573 for their Electronic Wheelchair Football Programme with the auction of their shirts worn during their league match vs PSV Eindhoven. Shirts of Greenock Morton FC, Újpest FC, PFC Ludogorets and FC Emmen are also (soon) on sale so the bidding continues!

All participating clubs do not have to pay any setup fee and benefit from the full service including a free dedicated auction page, shirt collection, payment handling, promotional material, and advertising on social media. You only need to select one or more dedicated matches, collect the shirts of the full matchday squad (worn & issued) and have them signed. MatchWornShirt takes all work off your plate so foundations can focus on what really matters: their work in communities!
