- Remembrance Fixture to take place against Wolverhampton Wanderers
- The Club have raised over £300,000 for the Royal British Legion to-date
- Supporters encouraged to donate online by clicking HERE 

To date, the Club’s Remembrance Fixtures have raised over £300,000, with LCFC commemorating the sacrifices of servicemen and women in conflicts past and present with a day dedicated to the Armed Forces community.

This year, with games currently being played behind closed doors, supporters are encouraged to donate online HERE to support the work of the Royal British Legion.

On the day of the game, City’s players will wear poppies on their shirts, which will later be auctioned on eBay to raise funds for the Royal British Legion, while Brendan Rodgers and his coaching staff will don dual-branded poppy pin badges.

Furthermore, both managers will lay a Poppy Wreath in front of their respective dug outs prior to the Sounding of the Last Post, which will start the two minutes silence.

A large Poppy Appeal banner will be placed in the East Stand and vinyl poppies visible inside and outside the ground, while supporters are encouraged to send in images of themselves adorning a poppy and send them to lord.mayor@leicester.gov.uk as part of Leicester City Council's virtual Remembrance events this year.

Images submitted will feature on the Council's official Instagram feed and on the outdoor screen at Green Dragon Square in Leicester over the upcoming Remembrance period.

As well as the first team, LCFC Women will wear poppies on their shirts during their clash with Lewes on Sunday, and these too will be auctioned on eBay.

The Birch said:“The Remembrance Fixture is an important date in our calendar each year, and although the Club’s fans won’t be able to be with us in person at the stadium on Sunday, their support is still hugely appreciated and I’d urge them to kindly donate to the Royal British Legion if they can.

“Fixtures like these go a long way in us being able to demonstrate our gratitude and thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country.”
