Get poppies for your football kits this Remembrance Weekend

Remembrance Weekend is on the way and thousands of footballers across the country will be paying their respects by wearing poppies on their shirts.

You’ve probably seen Premier League players wearing large poppies on their shirts in recent years and now the Poppies 4 Kits appeal allows amateur teams to do the same, whilst supporting the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal at the same time.

The self-adhesive poppies – available to buy at poppies4kits.co.uk – can be applied to football shirts for just a single use, meaning that clubs can wear them on Remembrance Weekend but don’t need to keep them on for the whole season.

Having launched in 2014 as a pilot project, Poppies 4 kits proved a huge success, with hundreds of teams across the country wearing the poppy – including the Great Britain women’s hockey team – and donations of over £18,000 far exceeding their £10,000 target.

This year the not-for-profit appeal has set a baseline target of £20,000 and, with 50p from the sale of every poppy going to the Royal British Legion, organisers are confident that, with the support of the grassroots community, they can achieve this target.

Poppies available include the standard red poppy and a ‘1915-2015’ centenary poppy, following last year’s successful ‘1914-2014’ poppy to mark one hundred years since the start of the First World War.

Both poppies will raise essential funds for the Royal British Legion, enabling them to uphold the memory of the fallen and support the future of the living.
