MLS Kicks Cancer with Game-Used Gear Auctions

MLS Kicks Cancer with Game-Used Gear Auctions

Like their football counterparts, the MLS is doing their part in the fight against breast cancer by using special pink gear and auctioning the items to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Throughout the month of October, players and referees will wear MLS W.O.R.K.S. ribbon patches on their jerseys, pink sweat bands and pink shoelaces. Some goalkeepers will also use pink gloves. The official game ball will be a pink edition of the Jabulani ball by Adidas. Each of the 18 teams in the league will also dedicate one game during the month to raise even more money by donating a portion of ticket sales. Finally, teams will hold in-stadium auctions and hold recognition ceremonies for local cancer survivors.

The auction is now open and several items are already up for bidding. A full listing of the items can be viewed on the official MLS W.O.R.K.S. website. More soccer gear will continue to be added throughout the month and the auction will end on November 7th. The MLS is also offering fans the chance to buy limited-edition pink apparel associated with the cause.

MLS W.O.R.K.S. is the soccer league's community outreach initiative. The events associated with raising breast cancer awareness and funds are part of the "Soccer Kicks Cancer" campaign.
