Umbro to Auction Off Custom Boots to Help Chapecoense Tonight

Tonight, a fundraiser will take place in London to aid Brazilian club Chapecoense after last year's terrible tragedy. Organized by LAFA (Latin American Footballers' Alliance), Umbro, who are Chapecoense's jersey supplier, have stepped in to support the event and will auction off a pair of one-of-a-kind football boots for the occasion.

Umbro Velocita Chapecoense Boots

This is Chapecoense special edition of the Umbro Velocita.

Based on the Umbro Velocita, these Chapecoense soccer cleats have a matte-gold sole plate and a bright red collar. The sides of the special-edition Umbro Velocita boots feature lots of green, Chapecoense logos and "Forca Chape" writings, alongside the iconic Double Diamond. The center and tongue area is all black.

With only one pair available worldwide, these Umbro Velocita Chapecoense boots will hopefully bring in some much needed funds to help out the club in these difficult times. They were created by Graffia Studio.

If you are in London, you can attend the event at Canning House from 6PM, or donate directly if you can't make it.
