At our upcoming Premier League and Women’s Super League games, the Club will pay its respects to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice in armed conflict and show support for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
Our men’s team will wear special edition shirts emblazoned with the Poppy at both our home fixtures against Liverpool on Sunday 6 November (4.30pm) and against Leeds United on Saturday 12 November (3pm). Our women’s team will also wear Poppy shirts when they host Everton in the WSL on Sunday 6 November (2pm) at Brisbane Road.
All match-worn shirts will be signed and auctioned following the matches to raise funds for the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.
Before kick-off on Saturday 12 November, the day before Remembrance Sunday, we shall be joined pitchside by 25 members of our Armed Forces Spurs Official Supporters’ Club, representative of the Army, Navy, and Royal Air Force.
We shall then observe a minute’s silence during which the Last Post will be played by Corporal (Retired RAF) Andrew John Lofthouse, former Principal Trumpet of the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.
Our ever-popular Spurs Poppy pin badges are now on sale online and at the Tottenham Experience for a donation of £4.99 to the Royal British Legion.
The badge is a testament to the strength of the ongoing relationship between the Club and the Legion – the UK’s leading Service charity, providing practical care, advice, and support to serving members of the Armed Forces, veterans of all ages and their families.
We are also encouraging all fans to share photos of themselves wearing their Poppy badges on social media using the hashtag #SpursRemembers.
