We are proud to once again have joined football clubs across the country in showing our support for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
To demonstrate our commitment to the charity, we included the emblem of a poppy in the design of the shirts issued for our Premier League fixtures against Everton and Sheffield United, as well as our WSL match against Manchester United, during the period of Remembrance.
All of these poppy-adorned shirts are available to fans through exclusive digital auctions at MatchWornShirt.com/poppy, with the proceeds raised being donated to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. Adding to the value of these shirts, each one will be individually signed by the respective player who wore it, making it a unique piece of sporting history.
As well as having the chance to bid on match-worn & signed shirts, fans will be able to enter an online ‘Draw’ and win a shirt that has been signed by the club’s squad (the full terms and conditions of this ‘Draw’ can be found here)
MatchWornShirt’s 2022 Poppy Appeal campaign was a spectacular success, raising more than £900,000 for the Royal British Legion.
The Royal British Legion
The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal takes place from Thursday 26 October until Remembrance Sunday on 12 November. Every year the RBL leads the nation in Remembrance across the UK to honour the contribution of our Armed Forces community, past and present.
Since it was first worn as an act of Remembrance just over 100 years ago, the red poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our Armed Forces. Remembrance unites people of all faiths, cultures, and backgrounds.
This year, the iconic poppy has been given a make-over and is now completely plastic-free and easily recycled. The new poppy, which has been revamped for the first time in 28 years, is made entirely from paper, no longer has a single-use plastic stem or centre and can be recycled through ordinary household recycling collections.
Every donation to the RBL’s Poppy Appeal helps to provide vital support to the Armed Forces community and ensure their unique contribution is never forgotten.
Every donation to the RBL’s Poppy Appeal raises vital funds to support the Armed Forces community all year round and ensures their unique contribution is never forgotten.
