SPFL announces partnership with MatchWornShirt

Your chance to own a ball from your favourite cinch Premiership team

The Scottish Professional Football League is delighted to unveil a new ‘Official Digital Auction’ partnership with MatchWornShirt, an industry leader in unique memorabilia, specialising in match-worn & signed football shirts but also offering a wide range of collectibles in rugby, cycling, and many other sports.

Under this innovative partnership, fans of Scottish football have the exciting opportunity to own the match balls from goals scored by their favourite cinch Premiership teams.

Starting from this weekend (31st March), and for the remaining months of this Season, MatchWornShirt will host exclusive online auctions from three home matches per cinch Premiership club where fans can bid for the official match balls used when a goal is scored.

This new online auction facility will give supporters the chance to buy and own a truly unique piece of Scottish football memorabilia, direct from the stadium to their very own collection!

Next season, fans will have an even greater number of opportunities to look forward to, with every goal resulting in a MatchWornShirt auction for the ball that hit the back of the net. Keeping up with the latest auctions is incredibly easy: all fans have to do is click here and follow their team.

James Flude, Head of Business Development at MatchWornShirt, described the significance of the partnership, saying: “We’ve been proudly collaborating with clubs across the SPFL for years now, and know first-hand how committed their fans are. Our auctions for their match-scored balls will strengthen the relationship between Scottish clubs and their supporters around the world, whilst also offering our customers consistent opportunities to own something truly unique”.

Neil Doncaster, Group Chief Executive at the Scottish Professional Football League, said:  “We are delighted to embark on this new and inventive partnership with MatchWornShirt.  It represents a new opportunity within the SPFL’s partnership portfolio and is an engaging way for Scottish football fans to become involved on match days.  I look forward to seeing the auctions go live and I am sure fans will be delighted to own their very own pieces of Scottish football history".

Brendan Napier, Commercial Director, Scottish Football Marketing commented ‘’Scottish football fans are rightly renowned and revered for their passion, commitment, and connectivity to their chosen clubs. This partnership with the team at MatchWornShirt is truly fan-first and gives supporters the ability to own their own piece of their clubs’ story via bidding for goal scored match-balls. We are delighted to be leading the way as one of the first leagues to adopt this opportunity, and we look forward to working alongside our clubs to bring this partnership to life this season and across the seasons to come’’
