The most expensive football (soccer) shirt sold at auction is £7,142,500 ($8,958,124) and was achieved by Diego Maradona's 'Hand of God' shirt worn at the 1986 World Cup quarter-final, which was sold at Sotheby's, London, UK, on 4 May 2022.
The shirt was worn by Diego Maradona as he helped Argentina to knock out England in the quarter-final of the 1986 World Cup. The second goal that Maradona scored in that game was dubbed the 'goal of the century' in a FIFA poll in 2002. Maradona's Argentina went on to knock out Belgium in the semi-finals and beat West Germany 3-2 in the final to lift the famous trophy.
