A missed David Beckham penalty shot in the Euro 2004 Tournament
resulted in a devastating loss for the English team, and an incredible opportunity for a
Spanish football fan, when the ball flew over the crossbar and landed in his arms. The fan
left the stadium with The Ball hidden under his shirt and later auctioned it off on eBay.
GoldenPalace.com hit front pages worldwide by winning that eBay auction. Their winning bid
for The Ball was a headline capturing Ä28,000.00!
GoldenPalace.com is now raising money for charity by giving people worldwide the opportunity
to do what Beckham couldn't; score a goal with the Ball in penalty shoot-out style competitions.
A World Tour is in progress, offering fund-raising opportunities at various stadiums worldwide,
while also allowing football fans everywhere the opportunity to fulfil childhood dreams of
living a dayís VIP star style treatment at their favourite football club, meeting their player
idols, plus kicking a penalty shot like a true soccer star on top tier turf, in front of
thousands of people with possible millions more watching on television!
The first Tour Stop was in Poland, when $160,000 was raised for charity. In December 2004,
successful UK Charity Shootout Tour Stops were hosted by Aston
Villa and Crystal Palace to benefit the NSPCC.
