Fans have opportunity to bid on original memorabilia & experiences.
Chicago, Ill. – The Chicago Red Stars are excited to announce a unique opportunity for fans to bid and win one-of-a-kind team memorabilia and in-game experiences throughout the 2016 National Women’s Soccer League season. 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 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.
First chance to bid will be on Sunday, May 29th, as the Chicago Red Stars take on Sky Blue FC at 6 p.m. CT. 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 https://chicagoredstars.com/schedule.
