Football Federation Australia (FFA) invites all Australians to 'Come Play!' in an effort to help raise funds for local communities in Samoa and Indonesia to rebuild and re-equip their sporting facilities following the recent natural disasters, through an online charity auction.

FFA has opened an eBay auction of a one-of-a-kind 'Come Play!' shirt signed by current Qantas Socceroos players including captain Lucas Neill, Mark Schwarzer and Vince Grella.

The one-of-a-kind eBay auction is another way for the football community to help the communities of Samoa and Indonesia.

Australia has a shared history with Oceania and the countries of the Pacific, and is also part of the 46 member Asian Football Confederation which includes Indonesia.

It has been an Octoberfest of football this month with Qantas Socceroos playing an international friendly match against the Netherlands, AFC Asian Cup qualification in Melbourne and the 'Olderoos' competing in the World Masters Games. The limited edition Come Play! shirt was officially launched earlier this month and formed part of the playing strip of the 'Olderoos'. This playing shirt is one of 24 produced and the only shirt signed by the Qantas Socceroos.

The auction opens today and closes 30 October, 6.00pm AEDST.
