Swansea City to launch match-worn shirt auction in aid of Maggie's

30th January
Swansea City shirt auction

Swansea City supporters can get their hands on a very special piece of memorabilia thanks to our online auction of the Maggie’s matchday jerseys our players will wear against Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

The Swans will be wearing a limited edition one-off home kit for the fixture against the Pilgrims, which will feature the Maggie's logo next to our club crest. 

And the club are offering supporters the opportunity to secure one of the match shirts,with all money raised from the auction being donated to Maggie's in order to help them continue to deliver their vital range of services for those impacted by cancer.

Maggie's rely totally on fundraising to keep their doors open, and costs to run their Swansea centre for 2024 are expected to be approximately £700,000.

Shirts worn by Swansea City players in Saturday’s match will be available to bid on in a live auction. This will include match-worn and match-issued shirts, which will be available to view from 2pm, after team line-ups have been confirmed.

The link will be available on our website and social media channels from 2pm on matchday.

The auction will go live and accept bids from 3pm on Saturday, it will conclude on Wednesday February 14 at 8pm. 

The Maggie's matchday is the latest part of our 'Tackling Cancer Together' campaign, which was launched in August 2023 when the cancer support charity became our official partner for the 2023-24 campaign.

Our vibrant, eye-catching pink third kit has been central to the campaign. The kit features spots of various colours, which represent some of the most common types of cancer.

The campaign includes a dedicated page on our website where you can share your own cancer stories, and donate to Maggie's.

About Maggie's

The first Maggie’s centre opened in Edinburgh in 1996, one year after the death of founder Maggie Keswick Jencks, whose own experience with cancer led her to resolve to establish a better support network for patients, their friends and their families.

Maggie’s now has more than 25 centres in the UK, as well as a small number based abroad, with plans for more to be opened before the end of the decade. Its Swansea centre opened in 2011.

The majority of UK centres are based on the grounds of NHS hospitals, and operate with the aim of helping people take back control when cancer turns life upside down. They provide professional support covering anything from the side-effects and impact of treatment, to financial advice or money concerns.

As a charity that relies entirely on gifts and donations, their efforts are made possible thanks to people like you, and Swansea City hope this partnership will help provide a fundraising boost to aid Maggie’s in their outstanding work.
