Priceless’ Lionel Messi shirt to be sold for charity

A “priceless” Lionel Messi shirt has been donated to charity, with pop star Selena Gomez set to host the auction at which the jersey will be sold.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has agreed to part with one of the tops that he wore at the 2022 World Cup. Messi helped Argentina to ultimate glory at that tournament in Qatar, allowing him to complete a remarkable medal collection and cement his standing among the all-time greats.

The shirt in question has been handed to the Rare Impact Fund, with the money raised from its sale set to help fund mental health access and education for young people all over the world. Gomez will be hosting a fund-raising event titled ‘A Night of Radiance and Reflection’ on Wednesday, with there suggestions that Messi could be in attendance.

The jersey that Messi has made available saw bidding open at $1,000. Unsurprisingly, it has not taken long for interest in the much sought-after piece of memorabilia to build, and it is currently going for $6,000. That price is expected to rise even further, with the lot in question considered to be “priceless”.

Gomez has already crossed paths with South American superstar Messi on one occasion in 2023, with the 31-year-old singer and actress among the A-list guests to have attended Inter Miami’s MLS clash with LAFC in California on September 4 – with a video of her reaction to a save which prevented Messi from hitting the net going viral.
