- Leicester City's signed, match-worn Poppy shirts have raised £32,186
- The money will be donated to the Royal British Legion
- Supporters from 20 countries contributed to the final tally
- Jamie Vardy's shirts raised nearly £10,000 towards the total
Worn during Sky Bet Championship fixtures against Leeds United and Middlesbrough, and the Barclays Women's Super League encounter with Arsenal, the Foxes shirts offered a unique memento for supporters to bid on over the past month.
Bids were received from 20 countries, including the UK, Australia, USA, Japan, Thailand, China, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates.
Jamie Vardy, the Club's third all-time top goalscorer, was naturally among the most popular players in the action, raising £9,047. Auctioned through MatchWornShirt.com, which works with clubs across the world, Vardy's Leeds and Boro shirts were in fact the 10th and 11th most popular items across the entire Poppy Appeal campaign respectively.

For the past century, the poppy has become an enduring symbol of support for our Armed Forces, an iconic part of national Remembrance across the UK to honour the contribution of our Armed Forces' service men and women, past and present.
Every donation to the Poppy Appeal helps to provide vital support to the Armed Forces community and ensure their service is never forgotten. Information on how to donate to the Poppy Appeal can be found HERE.
