14 January 2013

The club has launched an eBay auction in aid of the Poppy Appeal....

Coventry City FC have launched an official eBay account to raise money for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

The club has donated the shirts worn in our Remembrance weekend match against Scunthorpe United to be auctioned off on the site to raise money for the appeal.

The bidding will start at £40 for each shirt and it will be ran as an auction, with the shirts going to the highest bidder.

Twenty shirts are available for City fans to bid on and the auction will run for seven days. The auctions opened at 9am this morning so to get bidding, click here.

The player’s shirts available to auction on: James Bailey, Carl Baker, Callum Ball, Adam Barton, Nathan Cameron, Cyrus Christie, Jordan Clarke, Chris Dunn, William Edjenguele, John Fleck, Chris Hussey, Steven Jennings, Cody McDonald, David McGoldrick, Gary McSheffrey, Franck Moussa, Roy O’Donovan, Jamie Reckord, Jordan Willis and Richard Wood.

Stacie McDermott, Coventry City’s Marketing Campaigns Officer said: “We are delighted to be able to continue to support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal even further through auctioning the Player’s shirts, which were worn by the squad at the match against Scunthorpe on November 10th. 

“The club recognises that many of our supporters, as well as the region as a whole, have strong connections to the Armed Forces, so we wanted to offer the club’s support throughout the season and not just on the remembrance day fixture alone. 

“After supporting the local Poppy Appeal launch in the City Centre, it really highlighted the need for the club to be involved and to help in any way that it can. We hope by auctioning these shirts, we will help to raise more funds for the appeal.”
