To help raise awareness of the cause, Olsson will also raffle a number of his own personal football items, such as his shirts, shoes and boots.

These are not the first sports star's boots to have been sold for charity. In July, a pair of Usain Bolt's signed running spikes sold for 25,000 ($38,744) to raise funds for the sprinter's education foundation.
