Owls match-worn shirts go under the hammer!

1 December 2017

Sky Bet, the title sponsor of the EFL, are auctioning hundreds of signed, match-worn Poppy shirts for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

The shirts, from Sky Bet Championship fixtures across November, are being auctioned on the CharityStars website.

There are also 48 signed shirts from Sky Bet League One and Two teams each with a poppy badge attached that will be auctioned for the cause.

The Owls’ Championship clash with Aston Villa on Saturday 4 November at Villa Park was dedicated to the work of the Royal British Legion in supporting current and former service personnel with the match-worn shirts from that game available for auction.

You can now place your bids HERE on the CharityStars official website.

Sky Bet spokesman Sandro Di Michele said: “The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal is a cause we’ve worked closely with for nearly four years and we’re always impressed by the swell of support we see from EFL clubs and their fans.

“To be in a position where we can raise a huge amount of money for such a worthwhile cause and pay our respects to those who have served our country is an honour.”

The Royal British Legion’s Ben France said: “We're grateful to Sky Bet for supporting the Legion through the shirt auctions and to the football league community who each year dig deep and donate to the Poppy Appeal.”

The three previous Sky Bet Poppy shirt auctions have raised over £300,000 to date.
