The Premier League has been proud to support The Royal British Legion since 2012, making a significant contribution to raising much-needed funds to help people in the Armed Forces community.
During Premier League matches over the weekends of 4-6 November and 11-12 November 2023 ahead of Remembrance weekend, players and match officials will wear special-edition shirts embroidered with a poppy.
The players' match-worn will be signed and made available to purchase in an auction throughout November and December, with the funds raised going to The Royal British Legion.
🌹 Football clubs across the UK take to the field wearing the iconic poppy emblem on their match-worn shirts, which will be up for grabs to raise funds for the @PoppyLegion Poppy Appeal!— MatchWornShirt (@MatchWornShirt) November 2, 2023

This page will update with links to each club's auction site after the matches in which they have been worn.
Over the past 11 years the auctioning of these shirts has helped to raised more than £4million in total for the charity. Last year was the most successful yet, with about £700,000 raised through the auctions in 2022.
Your support for the shirt auction is as vital as ever.
The Armed Forces community make unique sacrifices and contributions and the Royal British Legion supports them and their families both during and after their service.
Every donation to the Poppy Appeal helps the Royal British Legion continue to provide vital support to veterans, serving personnel and their families, through such difficulties as homelessness, unemployment and poor mental health.
Fans can also show their support with a club-branded pin badge.
