Bidding is now underway on the match worn shirts from Cardiff City’s November victory over Huddersfield Town.
On Saturday 19th November, the Bluebirds beat Huddersfield Town 3-2 in the Sky Bet Championship. As the game was City’s closest to Remembrance Sunday, the entire team wore special commemorative shirts with a Poppy emblazoned on the chest.
This initiative helped raise awareness for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and all fans present on the day showed their respect with an impeccably observed minute’s silence. After the game, the players gave up their shirts to be auctioned in aid of the Royal British Legion.
The Royal British Legion is the UK's leading service charity, providing practical care, advice and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
Sky Bet’s Remembrance Auction is now live so don’t miss your chance to bid on any of the signed, match worn shirts adorned with the official Legion poppy.
Some of the shirts in the auction include those of captain Sean Morrison, Rickie Lambert and Junior Hoilett, the goal-scorers in that memorable win. The auction is open until 19th December 2016.
All proceeds from Sky Bet’s Remembrance auction will go directly to the Royal British Legion. They will be using the money to fund their Family Holiday Break scheme, giving the families of serving and ex-Service personnel the chance to take a break away from the strains of everyday life.
