The EFL and all 72 member clubs will unite to pay tribute to fallen servicemen, women and former players as part of Remembrance Sunday commemorations and the First World War Centenary.


Sky Bet League One and League Two clubs will honour those that lost their lives at war over the weekend of the 12-13 November, whilst the 24 Sky Bet Championship teams will pay their respects the following weekend on Saturday 19 November to mark the Centenary of the Battle of the Somme which ended 100 years earlier on 18 November 1916.


This Saturday, there will be a minute’s silence and an EFL wreath will be laid on the pitch prior to kick-off of City's game with Rochdale at the Northern Commercials Stadium to remember and honour all of those that have fallen in battle.  

City kit man John Duckworth, a former serviceman, will lay the special wreath made out of poppies on the centre circle on behalf of the club.


City's players will wear a remembrance poppy on their match shirts for the Rochdale fixture.
