The charity is giving fans the chance to own a unique piece of Albion memorabilia
Brighton & Hove Albion fans are being given the chance to buy rare signed match issue shirts and help fund disability football sessions across Sussex.
Albion in the Community (AITC) is the largest provider of disability sport opportunities in the area and holds more than 30 regular football sessions.
It also runs a host of disability teams who compete at regional and national level, including Brighton & Hove Albion Powerchair FC, who came fifth in the country’s top division.
Each year the charity helps hundreds of people of all ages to play football that might otherwise not have the opportunity, providing thousands of hours of expert coaching at venues throughout the county.
Disability football can, however, often be expensive to run, so the charity is holding an online auction to help fund the sessions.

Fans can bid on a string of match issued Albion home shirts signed by the individual players. They are the limited edition AITC sponsored shirts used by the Seagulls for their home game with Cardiff City last season.
The players' shirts that are up for sale include: Bruno, Kazenga Lua Lua, Lewis Dunk, Liam Rosenior, Sam Baldock and Uwe Huenemeier. Each player was given two tops for the match, hence the description as match issue, rather than match worn, as AITC can't guarantee these ones were definitely worn during the game.
The online auction runs until 22 June, bids start at just £25, there are no reserves and proceeds will help fund AITC’s award-winning work in the local area.
