To commemorate the fallen in war in both World Wars and subsequent conflicts involving British soldiers, Hartlepool United will don a special kit for Saturday's home match against Ebbsfleet United. The white jersey, featuring a red horizontal stripe, showcases a stylized repetition of the poppy, a renowned symbol of war casualties, at the center.
The poppy motif is also incorporated into the neckline, sleeve edges, and serves as a symbol on the back. The jersey is crafted from Mundial fabric, a soft and comfortable material with a double perforation construction.
Tiny micro-holes ensure optimal ventilation and temperature regulation. Breathability complements the characteristics of this "second skin" yarn, ideal for supporting peak performance in the game.
Jerseys worn by players will be auctioned after the match, with proceeds donated to the Royal British Legion, a charitable organization dedicated to supporting war veterans and their families
