SKY BET AUCTION MATCH-WORN CHAMPIONSHIP SHIRTS

19 November 2015

   
Football League sponsor, Sky Bet, are auctioning hundreds of match-worn, signed shirts from Sky Bet Championship clubs in aid of The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

Items from all 24 Sky Bet Championship clubs are being sold after the games on Friday 6th November and Saturday 7th November.

A total of 12 limited-edition Mitre commemorative match-balls, used in Sky Bet Championship fixtures, are also to be auctioned.

For the first time, fans of Sky Bet League One and League Two clubs are also able to help the cause, and bid on a fully signed shirt from their club, emblazoned with the official Legion Poppy.

Last year, Sky Bet and the Championship clubs worked together to raise over £118,000 for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal through the #BidToRemember campaign.

All of the money raised this year will go towards supporting vital services such as The Royal British Legion’s Family Holiday Breaks, which provides the families of serving and ex-service personnel the chance to take a break away from the strains of everyday life.

Sky Bet Head of Sponsorship Edwin Martin said, “Last year, the response we got from fans of clubs in the Championship was absolutely phenomenal.

“They really dug deep and raised a fantastic amount of money for an inspiring cause.

“The aim this year is to continue to support the work the Legion does in communities all around the UK and to give back to the families who have done so much for us.”

The Royal British Legion’s Head of Corporate Partnerships, Louise Ajdukiewicz, said, “It’s absolutely fantastic to have Sky Bet’s support for a second year running.

“The 2014 campaign raised an astounding amount for the Legion, and we are thrilled that they will be supporting us again by raising funds for vital services like the Battle Back Centre and Family Holiday Breaks.”
