Kick-off Christmas promotion: Pro League, clubs and supporters support Younited Belgium
Today, December 17, the Pro League and its 26 clubs kick off their annual Christmas promotion. During 13 days you can bid on the signed ‘matchworn’ shirts of all players from the Jupiler Pro League, the 1B Pro League and other unique items. The proceeds of the auction will go entirely to the social partner Younited Belgium.
The matches this match day (16) in the 1B Pro League and next match day (21) in the Jupiler Pro League will be played with the Younited Belgium logo on the chest. After the final whistle, the shirts are signed, collected and auctioned (unwashed, but disinfected) for the benefit of the charity.
The shirts are offered via matchwornshirt.com/proleague. There will also be many other “special items” that can be bid on, such as VIP experiences with a football commentator, an evening full of tall tales with Dave Peeters and Patrick Goots or a signed club jersey from Kevin De Bruyne or Michy Batshuayi. .
Younited Pro League
In order to emphasize the bond with Younited Belgium and to give the organization an extra boost, the Jupiler Pro League will be renamed the Younited Pro League for one match day. All branding will carry the Younited touch during the last Jupiler Pro League matchday of the year. You can bid on the shirts and the “specials items” from Friday 17 December at 12 noon. The auction of the shirts of the 1B Pro League players will run until December 28 at 9 p.m. All other items can be bid until December 30th at 9pm.
The Pro League, its clubs and Younited together believe in the power of football and the power of people. In their slogan, Younited Belgium summarizes the feeling that every football fan recognizes: MY TEAM, MY HOME.
There are currently thirty Younited teams spread across Belgium. Their players are experts in everyday survival who fight against vulnerability in housing, mental health, well-being, poverty or addiction. In their team, players build self-confidence and more structure in their lives and they also make contact with care providers and fellow sufferers. They find more than just teammates in their team, they also find a home.
