Match-worn poppy shirt auction raises over £6,000 for Royal British Legion
The auction of Swansea City's match-worn poppy shirts from the club's remembrance fixture against Sunderland has raised more than £6,000 for the Royal British Legion.
To demonstrate Swansea City's commitment to the charity, our jersey included the emblem of a poppy in the design of the shirts worn by the players in our home game against the Black Cats at the Swansea.com Stadium.
All of these poppy-adorned shirts were be made available to fans through exclusive digital auctions at MatchWornShirt.com/poppy, with the proceeds raised being donated to the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
Each one was be individually signed by the player who had worn it, allowing supporters to own a unique piece of sporting memorabilia.
And a final figure of £6,331 was raised from the auction, with captain Matt Grimes; shirt attracting the highest prices of £502.
