The Premier League has been a big supporter of the Legion for many years and has made a significant contribution to help raise much needed funds to help our Armed Forces community.
During matches played in the run up to Remembrance, (28-29 October and 4-5 November) players will wear shirts embroidered with a poppy, sign and donate them to the Legion to be auctioned.
Alongside the shirt auction this year, clubs will also sell pins featuring the poppy alongside the club’s crest with all proceeds going to the Legion.
The match-worn and signed shirts will be auctioned towards the end of November and throughout December. For your chance to own exclusive footballing memorabilia, visit www.premierleague.com/poppy and register your interest.
Over £1 million raised
Last year the support shown to the 2016 Poppy Appeal by the Premier League, its 20 member clubs and all their supporters was incredible. More than £220,000 was raised, totalling an astounding £1.2 million raised since our partnership began in 2012.
Having these clubs display the poppy on their shirts not only allows the Legion to raise such incredible amounts to support the future of the living; it also helps us uphold the memory of the fallen to a huge audience.
The Royal British Legion would like to thank the Premier League and supporters from all 20 clubs for their continuous and generous support over the Poppy Appeal.
