Sunderland players are showing their support for an armed forces charity by auctioning off special shirts worn in a match.

The Black Cats stars sported Poppy shirts during the Barclays Premier League game with Southampton at the Stadium of Light over the Remembrance weekend.

Now fans can own their very own piece of Sunderland AFC history while raising money for the Royal British Legion.

In addition to the commemorative shirts, the club also marked the Remembrance period with its biggest-ever military tribute by inviting over 2,000 serving military personnel, veterans groups and families of soldiers who have lost their lives in the service of their country to the Saints clash.

It was the 11th consecutive year that members of the Armed Forces and their families have joined with SAFC to support the country’s Remembrance Commemorations.

Sunderland supporters can get their hands on the special match-worn shirts by searching ‘Sunderland poppy shirts’ on ebay with the auctions ending on Monday, December 14.

All official items are sold by the seller ‘royalbritishlegion’.
