Messi’s World Cup 2022 jerseys to be auctioned for millions of dollars

Messi’s World Cup 2022 jerseys are to be auctioned for millions of dollars. Argentina’s star footballer Lionel Messi’s FIFA World Cup 2022 jerseys have been auctioned for millions of dollars.

According to foreign media reports, 6 jerseys worn by Lionel Messi during last year’s FIFA World Cup were auctioned for 7.8 million dollars in New York on Thursday.

The 6 jerseys, including the one worn by Messi in the World Cup final against France, were also put on display in New York before the auction.

Last month, 36-year-old Messi shared the news of the auction on social media and announced that a portion of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Children’s Hospital in Barcelona.

Details about the buyer of the Messi jerseys in the auction were not disclosed.

Before the auction, it was believed that Messi’s jerseys could be auctioned for more than one million dollars, which would be one of the most valuable auctions in the history of the game, but it was not possible.

It should be noted that the record for the most expensive jersey auction of any sportsman is held by former American basketball player Michael Jordan.

Michael Jordan’s jersey worn in the 1998 NBA Finals was auctioned for $10.1 million last year.

Talking about the auction of the most expensive footballer’s jersey, the record is held by the late Argentinian footballer Maradona, whose jersey worn in the World Cup quarter-final against England in 1986 was auctioned for 9.3 million dollars last year.

It should be remembered that under the leadership of Messi, Argentina won the World Cup for the third time after defeating France in the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
