Soccer fans worldwide can participate in the online auction platform powered by Gesture, an Illinois-based silent auction company that uses technology to extend the reach for people to work together to bring about positive change.

Proceeds from bidding on these items will contribute to the Red Stars charitable tickets initiative, which provides opportunities for local non-profits and undeserved youth in the Chicagoland area the chance to experience women’s professional soccer matches and see local stars and U.S. Women’s National Team heroes.

Local, out of state, and international fans are encouraged to register now on http://www.redstars.gesture.com or by texting the codeword ‘redstars’ to 52182 and be ready to place your bids during any home game, even if not present at the Red Stars home field of Toyota Park. Fans must register to be eligible to bid.

Fans can expect to see signed and game-worn team items from past and present Red Stars players, as well as unique experiences like watching a Red Stars home match from the press box, or having an opportunity to meet players on-field after a match.

Bidding will be live until the 70th minute of the contest on each and every home gameday. To view the entire Red Stars home schedule, visit http://www.chicagoredstars.com/schedule.

FAQ

After receiving the text about winning the auction, how do I pay?
There are three options on how you can pay for an item that you have won. After you register on our Gesture site and before you can start to place bids, you need to input credit card information. You can pay with this card that you have saved under your name and all you do is click “Card on File.” If you do not wish to pay with the card you have on file, then you can input a different credit card number and pay with it or you can pay with cash if you are present at the game and are able to pick up your item that day.
Can international or out of town fans bid even though I am not present at the game?
Gesture is a mobile platform that is not geo-locked and allows international and out of town fans can bid on the items even though they are not present at the home game. The items will be open during the time of our home game and as long as you are registered, you are allowed to bid. However, there is a shipping fee added onto the winning bid.
After I receive my notification that I have won the item, can I pick it up at the end of the match?
If you are present at the match, you are allowed to pick up the item at the end of the match as long as a payment is received.
