I’ve been privileged to be on the board of the fantastic Football Aid charity for over 8 years. I’ve never been prouder of the charitable collaboration we are currently undertaking with Heads Together, the mental health programme set up by The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Football Aid are auctioning off tonnes of match-worn and/or signed shirts including lots of signed shirts from the two Heads Up FA Cup finalists Arsenal and Chelsea.

I have two favours to ask. Please bid to help fundraise for this great cause and please spread the word. It may be on Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or TikTok. Help us amplify our message and maximise our fundraising potential.

For fans of Premier League teams (and you can click on the team link), we are delighted to have shirts from:

  1. Arsenal
  2. Aston Villa
  3. Bournemouth
  4. Burnley
  5. Chelsea
  6. Crystal Palace
  7. Everton
  8. Leicester
  9. Newcastle United
  10. Norwich City
  11. Sheffield United
  12. Southampton
  13. Watford
  14. Wolves

Over the Heads Up Weekends (8th–9th February 2020, and 15th–16th February 2020), football came together to kick off the biggest ever conversation around mental health.

Following the Heads Up Weekend matches, teams across the Premier League and the EFL have kindly donated their match worn shirts to the Heads Up campaign in order for them to be auctioned off to raise much-needed funds for the charity partners, Heads TogetherMind, and CALM.

The majority of the shirts have the unique ‘Heads Up’ logo on the front or the sleeve. These shirts were created for the Heads Up Weekends matches only, and are either match-worn or were issued to players for these matches. Most of the shirts are signed and will come with a copy of their letter or certificate of authenticity.

Ahead of The Heads Up FA Cup Final on 1st August, and following a football season unlike any other, Football Aid are privileged to be working with Heads Together to give fans a chance to bid for unique match worn shirts from the Heads Up Weekends. As well as bidding for a piece of history, you’ll be helping to continue the incredible work that is being done to improve and support our mental health across the country.

I hope you can find the shirt you have always dreamt of owning and framing and/or simply supporting these fantastic charities.
