WE WILL REMEMBER THEM | Burnley Football Club



In attendance were Wes Chaudhry, who represented his grandfather, Captain Nawaab Chaudhry, and was part of the Commonwealth during both World Wars, becoming one of the most decorated soldiers in the British Indian Army.

Also in attendance were veterans who engage with Burnley FC in the Community Veterans Program.

We would like to thank everyone, including the veterans in attendance and everyone for their continued service.


Football in the UK has come together to wear poppy-adorned jerseys in matches played ahead of this year’s Remembrance Weekend.

We are honored to show our support for the military community, with all players wearing the poppy on their shirts during games against Brentford on Saturday October 30th and at Chelsea on Saturday November 6th.

All jerseys worn in match will be signed and are now available for purchase in a live auction to raise funds for the Royal British Legion.

Every day the Armed Forces community continues to make sacrifices on our behalf, the red poppy is a symbol of both remembrance and hope for a peaceful future.

You can participate in the live auction and have the chance to own a shirt worn by a match – bid and win here.

All bands are personally signed by the players, once the auction is over the jerseys will be professionally sanitized – while retaining the items worn by the match – before being sent to the winning bidders.
