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

This year marks the centenary of the end of World War One, with the Premier League, The FA, EFL and the PFA joining forces under the banner of ‘Football Remembers’.

Shirts from Sky Bet Championship fixtures across October and November, including Rovers’ home game against Rotherham United, are being auctioned on the CharityStars website.

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

On November 11th 1918, the Armistice was signed, signalling the end of World War One.

One century on, England’s four football bodies will be part of the nationwide commemorations, with support from Premier League clubs, EFL clubs and the English national teams paying tribute through a variety of activities.

The four previous Sky Bet Poppy shirt auctions have raised over £350,000 to date.

When Rovers’ match-worn shirts are ready to browse and purchase, they will appear on the below link. Stay tuned to our social media channels for updates.
