Sky Bet, the title sponsor of the EFL, are auctioning hundreds of signed shirts for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

The match-worn tops, from Sky Bet Championship fixtures across November, are being auctioned on the CharityStars website.

There are also 48 signed shirts from Sky Bet League One and Two teams, each with a poppy badge attached that will be auctioned for the cause.

The bookmaker has also donated more than 400 tickets for EFL games to the Legion for use by current servicemen and women from across the UK.

Sky Bet spokesman Sandro Di Michele said: “The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal is a cause we’ve worked closely with for nearly four years and we’re always impressed by the swell of support we see from EFL clubs and their fans.

“To be in a position where we can raise a huge amount of money for such a worthwhile cause and pay our respects to those who have served our country is an honour.”

The Royal British Legion’s Ben France said: “We're grateful to Sky Bet for supporting the Legion through the shirt auctions and to the Football League community, who each year dig deep and donate to the Poppy Appeal.

“The Legion’s work is made possible thanks to the public’s generous support and the money raised from the auction will help us provide support to the Armed Forces community wherever it’s needed.”

The three previous Sky Bet Poppy shirt auctions have raised over £300,000 to date.
