Football is coming together to show its support for the Royal British Legion, with players across the country proudly wearing the poppy on their shirts in the lead up to Remembrance weekend.
Sheffield Wednesday will show our support for the Armed Forces community, with all players bearing the poppy in Friday’s Emirates FA Cup first round tie with Morecambe.
The match-worn shirts will be made available to purchase in a live auction straight from kick-off, with proceeds going to the Royal British Legion.
HOW TO BID
Our cup clash with the Shrimps gets underway at 7:45pm under the lights at Hillsborough – and the bidding begins!
Supporters from all over the world can place their bids on a player’s shirt of their choosing.
Matchwornshirt will then facilitate free worldwide shipping, payment and handling costs.
The auction will close on Saturday 19 November.
The game will be preceded by a minute’s silence and a rendition of ‘The Last Post’.
A SYMBOL OF HOPE AND REMEMBRANCE
The poppy is the enduring symbol of remembrance for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and also for those who continue to defend and improve our way of life today. This resilient flower flourished in the midst of destruction, becoming a symbol of hope and a peaceful future.
