All the proceeds from The Manchester United Themed Chevrolet Trax Auction, which will be running on eBay until 6th November, will go to the Foundation to support our work in the community.
The highest bidder will win a Chevrolet Trax 1.6 LT Sports Utility Vehicle, liveried with a motif bonnet signed by the Barclays Premier League winning Manchester United team of 2012/13.
The auction is expected to attract a number of fans, collectors, celebrities and car enthusiasts who will want to get their hands on such a rare, unique item.
Apart from the signed Trax, Chevrolet, the Official Automotive Partner to Manchester United, has also donated a number of highly sought after items including a Wayne Rooney match-worn shirt from his hat-trick match against Hannover in 2012 and a signed shirt from Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic, worn during this year’s Community Shield against Wigan.
The list of items falling under the hammer also includes a One World Futbol signed by Manchester United first team squad players Patrice Evra, Michael Carrick, Ashley Young, Jonny Evans, Anders Lindegaard and Danny Welbeck. Auction participants also have the chance to be a team mascot at Manchester United’s match against Hull on April 26, 2014.
Andy Higgins, Managing Director of Chevrolet UK, commented; “We are very excited about The Manchester United Themed Chevrolet Trax Auction. To my knowledge it is the first time that a car signed by the whole Manchester United team has been made available to the fans and I am sure there are plenty of them across the world who would like to get their hands on it.
"The money raised from the auction will make a significant difference to the fantastic work carried out by the Manchester United Foundation and we are delighted to be working with them on this project.”
