Signed Poppy Shirts To Be Auctioned Off For Charity

The match shirts worn by Everton’s Men and Women's players in the Club’s upcoming fixtures are to be signed and auctioned in support of the Royal British Legion.

Everton’s shirts will be embroidered with a poppy for Saturday’s visit of Leicester City, Tuesday’s Carabao Cup trip to AFC Bournemouth and next weekend’s Premier League outing at the same opponents as part of the Club’s Remembrance activity. 

Everton Women, meanwhile, will wear specially-made shirts for their Barclays Women's Super League contest at Tottenham Women on Sunday.

Each player will sign their match-worn shirt after each game, with Evertonians already able to begin bidding on items from the Leicester match here.

Founded in 1921, the Royal British Legion is England’s largest armed forces charity, with 180,000 members benefiting from their work.

They provide lifelong support to serving and ex-serving personnel and their families, which could be anything from recovery and rehabilitation to transitioning to civilian life.

The match-worn shirts will be auctioned online via

Each individual auction will commence at kick-off of the corresponding fixture. The auction for the Leicester City fixture will close at 1pm (GMT) on Saturday 19 November. The Bournemouth cup game auction will end at 1pm (GMT) on Sunday 20 November, with the auction for the Premier League meeting with the Cherries to end exactly one week later at 1pm (GMT) on Sunday 27 November. 

The Women's shirts are set to be available for auction from 2pm (GMT) on Sunday 6 November.

Supporters from around the world are welcome to bid on the shirts, with waiving all delivery costs.
