Sunderland AFC is to continue its support of the Royal British Legion with a limited edition poppy pin badge on sale in club stores.
The bespoke badge features the traditional poppy emblem alongside the club crest and all proceeds of the sale of the limited edition item will go to the forces charity.
Only 1,000 of the badges have been commissioned and are available to purchase from either the Stadium of Light or Galleries Washington club stores, priced at £3.
Next weekend Sunderland AFC will welcome over 2,500 serving military personnel, veterans groups and families of soldiers who have lost their lives in the service of their country, in what will be the club’s largest-ever military tribute. Activities will take place prior to the Barclays Premier League clash with Southampton FC and a traditional period of silence will be observed before kick-off.
This will be the eleventh consecutive year that members of the Armed Forces and their families have joined with the club in support of the country’s Remembrance Commemorations.
NB. These are now reported as SOLD OUT at the Stadium Shop
