LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – Oct 28, 2013: One lucky fan will have the chance to drive away with a unique Chevrolet Trax signed by the Manchester United first team in a special eBay for Charity auction launched today.

All the proceeds from The Manchester United Themed Chevrolet Trax Auction, which will be running on eBay until November 6, will go to the Manchester United Foundation to support its 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.

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.”

The Manchester United Foundation works in some of the most disadvantaged areas across Greater Manchester and uses the passion for Manchester United to educate, motivate and inspire young people.

The Foundation delivers football coaching, skills training, personal development and life changing experiences, to provide young people with opportunities to change their lives for the better.
