NOTABLE CHARITY WORK
In April 2021, Romanian referee Octavian Sovre approached Håland at the end of the first leg of UEFA Champions League Quarter-Final between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund to ask the Norwegian to autograph his red and yellow cards. It was later revealed that the cards would be auctioned off to raise money for SOS Autism Bihor, a Romanian charity dedicated to providing support to autistic people.
