Win the worn, signed shirt of your favourite player and support The Royal British Legion

4 November 2022

You could win a match worn signed shirt and a poppy armband in support of the Royal British Legion.

Match worn shirt

At Rovers, we cherish the importance of supporting our armed forces community, something that English football has proudly done since 2012. This year the Premier League, English Football League and Women’s Super League are once again showing their support for the armed forces by wearing the poppy on their armbands for remembrance weekend.

Rovers are offering fans around the world the unique opportunity to bid on players’ worn shirts and a poppy armband from the fixtures against King’s Lynn Town and Grimsby Town. All shirts will be placed on auction at kick-off via MatchWornShirt, with the proceeds raised going to the Royal British Legion. Once the auctions have begun, you will be able to place your bids on all shirts at matchwornshirt.co.uk/poppy.

Through last year's event, MatchWornShirt managed to raise a total of more than £800,000 in proceeds.

The symbolic value

Your poppy shows you care and helps the RBL to continue its vital work. Our Armed Forces have always been committed to protecting us, our freedoms and our society’s way of life. From maintaining security and peace around the world to supporting during natural disasters and national emergencies, the Armed Forces play many roles in our protection.

Wearing your poppy shows serving personnel, veterans and their families their service and sacrifice means something to you and will never be forgotten. We come together once a year in a national moment to demonstrate our gratitude for and pride in the whole Armed Forces community, past and present. Since the First World War, remembering the unique contribution of our Armed Forces has been part of the fabric of society.

Your support

This year, football fans will once again have the opportunity to own an exclusive piece of Rovers’ history, all made possible thanks to our joint effort with the Royal British Legion. In order to own an incredible piece of memorabilia and to provide your support head over to matchwornshirt.co.uk/poppy.

The Royal British Legion is there for the Armed Forces community throughout their lives, providing a lifeline for serving personnel, veterans and their families, supporting them in the face of hardships, injuries and bereavements. But that vital work can only continue with your help. By supporting the RBL’s Poppy Appeal you’re helping to provide ongoing vital support to the Armed Forces community and ensure their unique contribution is never forgotten. Go to www.britishlegion.org.uk to learn how your contribution will have an impact.
