Once again, City are embracing the spirit of Remembrance Sunday by raising money for the Royal British Legion.
As is done annually, the Club will auction off the special match-worn shirts from Sunday's defeat to Sunderland and all proceeds will go to the RBL.
Last year, the Club raised a staggering £15,000 for the charity but we are hoping to raise even more this year. Prior to the recent victory over Norwich, we held a collection which will help to add to our target.
Charles Byrne, Director of Fundraising at the RBL, said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that Manchester City is giving the Poppy Appeal once again this year.
“We look forward to seeing the players, manager and staff wearing their poppies with pride over the coming days.”
The RBL is the UK's leading Service charity. It spends £1.7 million every week on direct, practical care for serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
Details of the shirt auction will appear on the site in the coming days. Please show your support in any way you can and keep checking back to the website to find out more about this fantastic cause.
