Swansea City auction match-worn and signed shirts to support the Poppy Appeal

2nd November 2023


This November Swansea City is proud to once again be joining football clubs across the country to show our support for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

As in recent years, to demonstrate our commitment to the charity, we will again include the emblem of a poppy in the design of the shirts worn by our players in Saturday’s fixture against Sunderland during the period of Remembrance.

All of these poppy-adorned shirts will 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 will be individually signed by the player who has worn it, allowing supporters to own a unique piece of sporting memorabilia.

MatchWornShirt’s 2022 Poppy Appeal campaign was a spectacular success, raising more than £900,000 for the Royal British Legion (RBL).

The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal takes place from Thursday, October 26 until Remembrance Sunday on November 12.

Every year the RBL leads the nation in Remembrance across the UK to honour the contribution of our Armed Forces community, past and present.

Since it was first worn as an act of Remembrance just over 100 years ago, the red poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our Armed Forces.

This year, the iconic poppy has been given a makeover and is now completely plastic-free and easily recycled. The new poppy, which has been revamped for the first time in 28 years, is made entirely from paper, no longer has a single-use plastic stem or centre and can be recycled through ordinary household recycling collections.

Every donation to the RBL’s Poppy Appeal helps to provide vital support to the Armed Forces community and ensure their contribution is never forgotten.

To help the Royal British Legion continue its vital work, head to MatchWornShirt’s website and get involved in one of the many auctions for this year’s Poppy Appeal: MatchWornShirt.com/poppy,
