The Canaries join an impressive list of sporting stars, celebrities and leading businesses who have donated to the auction including Jose Mourinho, Andre Villas-Boas and Graeme Swann.

The Ultimate Norwich City Experience - donated by the club - offers two people a chance to enjoy a tailor-made VIP home match experience. This prize includes a stadium tour, delicious meal in the Directors Lounge, plus tailor made extras – for example, if you would like to bring a child with you Norwich City FC will look at potentially making them mascot for the day.

In 2011, Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough Online Charity Auction brought you Mourinho’s FIFA Ballon d’Or 2010 World Coach of the Year Trophy. This year, the online auction has upped the ante – with the opportunity to attend the FIFA Ballon d’Or ceremony in Zurich 2014 joining the growing list of money-can’t-buy experiences.

Mark Robson, Sir Bobby’s son, said: “The online auction is a fantastic way to help us continue the work my father started and raise crucial funds for cancer charities. We are overwhelmed by the generous donation from FIFA. I urge people, clubs and companies to consider donating, however big or small, and bidding to help us reach our £1million target.”

Other amazing prizes include Paul Gascoigne’s pre-World Cup Italia ‘90s training game shirt, a one-on-one personal bowling session at Lords Cricket Ground with England professional cricketer Graeme Swann, a VIP trip to next year’s F1 Grand Prix in Monaco by private ‘Eclipse’ jet, and tickets to the 2014 PFA Awards Dinner.

Gina Long, the auction founder, said: “It is so exciting to launch the Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough Online Charity Auction with this incredible item from FIFA. I encourage everyone to head to the website and register to bid as an item like this is bound to be a favourite with football fans! Not into football? Check out our other auction items, there is literally something for everyone!”

Running from October 10-27, Sir Bobby’s Breakthrough will raise crucial funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, Breakthrough Breast Cancer and cancer services within two Suffolk Hospitals.

The auction is now live - to bid go to www.sirbobbysbreakthrough.com and click the ‘Register to Bid’ button.
