As we mark 75 years since the end of the Second World War, The Royal British Legion is honouring the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces who came together to defend our way of life then, but also those who continue to do so today.
In a show of their support, Premier League players will once again wear special-edition shirts embroidered with a poppy in matches played in the lead-up to this year’s Remembrance weekend.
Match-worn shirts will be signed and made available to purchase in an auction, with all proceeds going to the Legion.Purchase a shirt
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.
Claire Rowcliffe, Director of Fundraising at The Royal British Legion said: "The pandemic has had an overwhelming impact on people’s livelihoods and way of life, leaving some in the Armed Forces community in dire need of urgent help and support.
"We are extremely grateful for the support that 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, and this year we need that support more than ever, so we can ensure that those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf are looked after. Every poppy counts."
