Poppy armband auction

This is your chance to own a piece of Scottish sporting history, and support our Armed Forces community at the same time.  Ahead of the Euro 2018 qualifier between Scotland and England at Wembley on Armistice Day 2016, The Scottish Football Association took the decision to defy a FIFA ban and allow their players to wear black armbands bearing the iconic Scottish poppy symbol in commemoration of the sacrifices made by our Armed Forces community, past and present.

The SFA have kindly donated three of these match worn armbands and have allowed Poppyscotland to auction them to raise funds to support our life-changing work. One of these has already been auction and this is for the second armbands.  The final armband will be auctioned on eBay at a later date.

The armband been personally signed by the current and previous Scotland captains, Darren Fletcher and Scott Brown, who both played in the match.

100% of the proceeds from this auction will go to support Poppyscotland’s life-changing work for the Armed Forces community. For more information on how you donations help visit www.poppyscotland.org.uk.  For clarification, Poppyscotland is the trading name of the Earl Haig Fund Scotland and all proceeds from the auction will automatically come to the charity.
