2013 Urso Fund

Looking for a signed MLS jersey, or maybe a ball signed by an entire MLS team? And while helping to honor the memory of a departed MLS player?


The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is holding the 2016 Kirk Urso Memorial Match on Saturday, and for those who can't make it to the match, there's an online auction being held in conjunction.


The auction, live now, features plenty of signed jerseys and balls from MLS teams, all donated by the respective teams. There's something for just about every MLS fanatic.


Proceeds from the auction will go towards both the Urso Memorial Match, a quadruple-header featuring eight local college sides including UNC, and to the Kirk Urso Memorial Fund. The auction closes Monday, Apr. 11 at 10 pm ET.


Urso died in August 2012 during his rookie season with Columbus due to a heart condition. He played collegiately at UNC, leading the Tar Heels as captain in 2011 to the NCAA title.
