Your chance to bid for a piece of history in aid of good causes
• Signed special edition shirts from our historic inaugural Premier League match and Legends match at our new stadium are up for auction.
• Money raised will go to our official Club charities – Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.
• Fans can now place their bids via our eBay page – the auction will be live until Friday 19 April.
Although all players involved in our inaugural Premier League match against Crystal Palace and our Legends match against Inter Forever retained their match-worn shirts as personal mementos from such special occasions, each have individually signed their second shirts and provided them for auction.
Each shirt features commemorative wording beneath the neckline to mark the occasion, creating a real collectors’ item for any fan.
You can now bid for the shirts via the Club’s official eBay page until Friday, with auctions for each item set to end individually between 3.30pm and 7.30pm.
Fans will find signed shirts from heroes past and present including Robbie Keane, Rafael van der Vaart and Heung-Min Son – scorer of the first ever Premier League goal at our new home.
Money raised from the auction will go to our official Club charities – Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.
Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice
The Club’s official charity partner since 2016, Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice is a ‘Hospice at Home’ service providing support for babies, children and young people with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions and their families.
The partnership sees the Club help raise awareness of the work of the charity and drive the recruitment of volunteers via high profile events and the support of the first team players.
Noah’s Ark provides clinical, emotional and practical care to the babies, children and young people it supports, with a central aim of enabling them to live life as fully as possible, regardless of cognitive or sensory ability.
The charity also provides respite to families, helping them to face the future with hope after bereavement.
Every child receives a bespoke package of Hospice-at-Home support, including specialist care and therapies as well as access to a family activities programme. The work is supported by trained volunteers who give families support at home, helping them spend more time together.
There are more than 1,200 children with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions in the charity’s catchment area, but currently no children’s hospice building. Through the Building The Ark campaign, Noah’s Ark is raising funds to construct The Ark – a children’s hospice building for North and Central London and Hertsmere.
