Money raised from the auctions of club shirts will help The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal 2017

The first signed Premier League shirts with poppies have gone up for auction and you can bid for them and raise funds for The Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal 2017.

Fans interested in purchasing the shirts and contributing to the appeal can for the first time register that interest for the auctions at premierleague.com/poppy.

The League has been supporting The Royal British Legion since 2012, and has raised £1.3million for the charity.

This money has helped The Legion offer support in many ways, including providing crisis grants, researching the long-lasting impact of blast injuries on the body, lobbying the government on issues that affect the Armed Forces community, sport and art based recovery programmes and advising on benefits and money problems.

"The work of the Legion is as relevant and vital today as it was in the aftermath of the First World War when the charity was founded," The Royal British Legion’s Director of Fundraising Claire Rowcliffe said. "The donation for your poppy will help the Legion support today’s Armed Forces community through hardships, injury and bereavements."
