Whats a testimonial?
The tradition of testimonials started in an era of sports during which player compensation was very minimal. When a player retired, the club would host a friendly match either between teams comprised of former teammates and friends of the player being honored. The proceeds of the match are given to the player, as a thank you for their service and to better prepare them for life after soccer.
