Football is a sport steeped in culture and passion which is why fans are constantly looking for ways to get involved. That's where AC Momento comes in.
For years, supporters have been seeking opportunities to get their hands on match-worn kits and other memorabilia. Secondary marketplaces have often dominated those bids and sparked huge prices.
It's nearly impossible to get your hands on Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo gear without breaking the bank.
AC Momento has a new way of doing business though and it's an exciting step for die-hard supporters looking to secure gear.
Founder and CEO John Brennan is committed to offering a new platform that gives fans the chance not only to find more affordable options worn by their favorite players but also to ensure that they're authentic.
"I think the biggest thing for us is knowing the authenticity is there and priding ourselves on the fact that our users will be satisfied," Brennan told ONE37pm.
"Match-worn items are a completely different ball game when you're shelling out big bucks. I'd buy something from other secondary markets and you'd get these companies authenticating them that you've never heard of.
"Sometimes you'd get lucky but there were definitely times where I'd get burned."
The company has kickstarted its endeavors with four significant European clubs, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Benfica, and Sevilla.
On Thursday, Momento announced it's teaming up with NWSL side Angel City FC ahead of their match against the San Diego Wave.
With the partnership, Angel City will use the money towards their Player 22 Future Program.
The initiative is designed to help former NWSL players start their careers in sports beyond the pitch.
