Men and women’s special-edition poppy shirts up for auction

Summer arrivals Ben Chilwell, Thiago Silva and Timo Werner were all on the scoresheet in our recent 4-1 victory against Sheffield United and you can now get your hands on their exclusive signed poppy-embroidered match-issued shirts.

The shirts of all the team from our Premier League win against Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge are now available to buy to raise valuable funds for the Royal British Legion.

Signed by the respective player, the shirts with the poppy on the chest are being auctioned via matchwornshirt.com

The poppy is the official symbol of the Legion and originates from the poppy fields of Flanders, the scene of some of the most tragic battles in the First World War.

Chelsea Women made it 26 games unbeaten in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, setting a new club record with a dominant 4-0 victory over Everton on Sunday.

Poppy-embroidered match-issued shirts from that record-breaking triumph will also be available to bid on including the shirt of double goalscorer Bethany England.

All money raised from the auction will go towards the Legion, which helps men and women from the Armed Forces and their families, offering financial, social and emotional support.

The online auction will end on Sunday 29 November. The shirts will be professionally disinfected prior to sending to the winning bidders.
