Abu Dhabi: The Euro 2008 football signed by shaikhs from across the seven emirates will go under the hammer for charity, officials announced on Monday.
The ball, named The Royal Euro 2008 Football, will be auctioned in September.
The Austrian and Swiss embassies in association with Nahtam Social Responsibility are putting the event together. The money from the auction will go in support of eight UAE-based charitable organisations.
