Southampton Football Club will be wearing commemorative poppy-branded shirts at Friday’s home fixture against Aston Villa, as they did in last weekend’s game at Watford, in support of the Royal British Legion.
Ahead of Remembrance Day, the club is paying its respects to the British Armed Forces and inviting supporters to get involved by bidding on the match-worn shirts following Friday’s match.
All of the shirts worn on matchday will be put up for auction by Saints Foundation to help raise money for the Royal British Legion.
Fans will also be able to make donations at the Aston Villa game, with Royal British Legions collectors taking donations around St Mary’s before kick-off.
This year marks the centenary of the Royal British Legion, who rely solely on help from the public in order to provide lifelong support for both serving and ex-serving personnel and their families.

Get involved in the match-worn shirt auction when it is announced by Saints Foundation early next week.
