The Royal British Legion is proud to have the Premier League’s continued support for the Poppy Appeal. 

The appeal hopes to encourage communities to join together in Remembrance activities of all sorts, to remember the wide-ranging contributions people from all cultures and backgrounds have made through their service.

As a show of their support, The Premier League will once again wear special-edition shirts embroidered with a poppy in matches played in the lead-up to this year’s Remembrance weekend.

The match worn shirts will then be signed and made available to purchase in an auction after the game, with all proceeds going to the Legion.

£1.6m

The Premier League has been supporting the Legion since 2012, and has so far raised £1.6 million pounds for the charity since the partnership began.

This money will help the Legion offer support in many ways including:

  • Providing crisis grants
  • Lobbying the government on issues that affect the Armed Forces community
  • Providing sport and art based recovery programmes
  • Advising on benefits and money problems

 

Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion said: “This year we have marked a number of commemorative dates that remind us of the close relationships the British Armed Forces has with partners from around the world. That’s why this year we’re encouraging the nation to remember together and honour the sacrifice made by the peoples and nations who served alongside each other to protect our way of life.

We are extremely grateful for the support the Premier League clubs and the football community show the Poppy Appeal every year. The Legion’s work is entirely dependent on the public’s generous support – so please wear your poppy with pride, knowing you have made a real difference to the lives of Service men and women, veterans and their loved ones.”
