You may remember that back in April, Waking the Red put together a team for the annual Football for Good fundraising tournament at Toronto FC’s training ground. While our performances on the pitch left plenty to be desired, your generous donations did not and in total we raised $1,185.
Thanks to those donations we landed a shiny, signed 2016 Toronto FC home jersey from the organizers. The Reds’ rather crazy schedule has got in the way of us deciding what to do with it until now but as we enter the latest international break, it’s going to end up in the hands of one lucky winner through a contest we’re running.
Here’s the shirt in all its glory:
It’s an adult men’s large.
Unfortunately it isn’t signed by every player, and the DPs seem to have taken the day off when it was passed around. While some of the signatures are difficult to make out, though, it definitely includes the likes of Drew Moor, Justin Morrow, Alex Bono and Raheem Edwards as well as Benoit Cheyrou, the scorer of a rather important goal in a shirt similar to this one.
I’m not entirely sure, but I think it is also signed by TFC legend Johan Brunell, which may make it one-of-a-kind. Decide for yourselves:
We’re running the competition on Facebook to ensure it reaches the widest possible audience, so head over to the post and follow the instructions to be in with a chance.
1. You must be a resident of Canada or the USA.
2. The deadline for submissions is 11.59pm on Saturday, July 8.
3. The winner will be chosen by the Waking the Red staff and notified via Facebook. You’ll then need to provide us with an address to send the jersey to. We’ll pay postage because we’re super nice.
4. One entry per person.
5. Goes without saying but for clarity: Waking the Red contributors and their relatives will not be eligible to win.
6. By entering you agree to our rules and anything we’ve forgotten that we have to add later. We run a very professional operation, as you can tell.
7. We’re hoping we get some fun, interesting entries that we’d love to collect and display in an article on our site, so by entering you consent to that as well.
