The Sevilla Futbol Club, of the Spanish La Liga soccer league, are offering their supporters the chance to put the players jerseys. Fans now have the opportunity to buy a 2mm x 2mm square within a shirt number of a player of their choice. The tiny photo will then appear alongside thousands of other photos to constitute the number. Each square costs €24.90 ($33.35) and each number contains around 3,000 squares, meaning each digit could potentially generate €75,000 ($100,050.00) for Sevilla.
