Barnsley FC is asking all supporters attending this Saturday’s FA Cup fixture against Burton Albion to join us as we pay our respects to all members of our Armed Forces who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom.
We will be remembering and honouring all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice - those who have served in the past and those who continue to fight today to maintain our freedom - ahead of kick-off.
Players and officials will emerge from the tunnel slightly earlier than normal before a minute’s silence is observed.
The players will show their support to this year’s Poppy Appeal by playing in the home shirt for this match featuring a distinctive red poppy printed on the front of each shirt.
Barnsley fans will have the unique opportunity to bid for your favourite player's match-worn or match-prepared shirts on the Club's official ebay account.
The auction will start from midday on Thursday 13th November and finishes on Sunday 23rd November. Each player’s shirt will also be signed by the respective player on the front and back of the shirt.
All money raised from this shirt auction will be donated directly to the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.
We thank you in advance for your support in remembering our heroes.
Lest We Forget.
