It was a new charitable initiative launched by Valencia along with the Red Cross. The aim was to auction these one-off shirts to raise funds for damage caused by the earthquake that devastated Nepal.

For the record, in their battle for a Champions League place, Valencia, in fourth place, drew 1-1 with Celta Vigo.
