Manchester City shirt auction raises thousands for British Legion

An auction to sell commemorative poppy shirts worn by members of the Manchester City first team has raised over £8,000 for The Royal British Legion.

The postal auction, which opened after the Manchester City vs. Burnley match on November 7th, offered fans the opportunity to bid for these unique match-worn shirts.

Each shirt from the game against Burnley was embroidered with a poppy as part of the Remembrance Day activities. One hundred tickets were also donated to current service personnel and a poem was read out by a representative for the Royal British Legion before kick off.

A cheque for the donation was presented at the Manchester City vs. Bolton match on February 9th.

Jim Baker from the British Legion said “The generosity of Manchester City fans has been unbelievable. We would like to thank all those involved in the auction for their contribution to this valuable cause.”

Manchester City are continuing their discount for service personnel, which means that the armed forces can now watch Premier League games for as little as £17.

The Royal British Legion is a UK charity that provides financial, social and emotional support to millions who have served and are currently serving in the Armed Forces, and their dependants.
