Major League Soccer is undertaking a series of initiatives to celebrate Juneteenth – the historic date commemorating the emancipation of enslaved African-Americans in the U.S.
All programs are a close collaboration between MLS, the league’s 28 clubs, and Black Players for Change (BPC) – an independent organization of Black MLS players, coaches, and staff working to bridge the racial equality gap in soccer and society. The programs are also a continuation of MLS’ work to bring awareness to the significant contributions of Black Americans, and to foster more inclusive and equitable communities.
Game-worn jerseys will be available for fans to acquire via an online auction from June 20 – July 5. D.C. United will be sending proceeds from the Juneteenth jersey auction to Serve Your City/Ward 6 Mutual Aid.
Additional auction information, including how to place a bid, are now available at https://www.MLSauctions.com.
