Referee shirt from the 2011 UCL Final auctioned by assistant Eros (HUN)

Gabor Eros (Hungary) was Viktor Kassai’s assistant in the 2011 UEFA Champions League Final, as well as the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Between these two high-level competitions, he was diagnosed with kidney cancer and last October had a long (over 7 hours) and difficult surgery. It seemed that things have returned to normal, but tests conducted this summer revealed that the disease was not fully eliminated. Most likely, he would need a kidney transplant, which costs a lot of money, even for a World Cup assistant referee.
In order to get the money needed for a transplant, Gabor Eros has auctioned (see here) a referee shirt from the 2011 Champions League Final with the autographs of all match officials. Referee Viktor Kassai donated his cards used in the UCL final Barcelona - Manchester United, also with the autographs of the match officials. The auction will run until 16 August 2011.
