Event on : A golden football, a worldwide first

(JPEG) An Adidas +Teamgeist football, as officially used in all this year’s World Cup matches, has been entirely covered in 24-carat gold leaf by the French specialists, Maison de la Dorure.

It has been signed by all the players of France’s 2006 World Cup team and, with a certificate of authenticity, will be auctioned on in aid of Reporters Without Borders.

The starting price will be one euro and the bidding will begin on Friday 16 June and end on Saturday 22 June.

The successful bidder, as well as having the satisfaction of owning something unique, will also be helping to support journalists fighting to defend the right of all of us to be kept informed of the news.

Reporters Without Borders sincerely thanks the French Football Federation for its valuable help, as well as the Maison de la Dorure and for their support for this event.
