Watford captain Troy Deeney is one of many Premier League players from all 20 clubs to have donated signed shirts to be won in a raffle organised by the #PlayersTogether campaign, raising money for the NHS.

The campaign today announced the largest signed shirt raffle in the history of football, ‘Shirts For Heroes’, aiming to collect more funds for NHS Charities Together following their donation earlier this year.

The raffle will take place on Wednesday, June 3, from 7pm, when supporters will have the chance to win a signed shirt from a choice of 500 players for £5 per entry on Ebay UK.

The raffle ends on Sunday June 14 at 7pm and winners will be selected at random and notified by July 1.

The Players of #PlayersTogether jointly stated: “As players, we have been determined as a group to help in any way we can. That’s why we established #PlayersTogether to raise much needed funds for front line carers through NHS Charities Together. This is a player led-initiative, working together collaboratively across all clubs and we are delighted to team up with eBay to offer our signed shirts in the Shirts for Heroes campaign. We hope this is something all fans up and down the country can get involved in and help us raise money to make a difference for the real heroes of this crisis.”

Ellie Orton, Chief Executive of NHS Charities Together, thanked the players for the initiative and said: “These are incredibly trying times, especially for those working on the frontline fighting Covid-19, but the outpouring of support from the British public for NHS staff, volunteers and patients has been absolutely incredible. We’re so grateful to #PlayersTogether and can’t wait to see the response to their Shirt for Heroes raffle on eBay. Sport has a wonderful way of bringing people together, and we hope this raffle is a fun way for the millions of football fans to rally around our NHS heroes while having the chance to win one of these amazing signed shirts.”

Rob Hattrell, Vice President at eBay UK, said he felt pride at being able to provide the players with the platform to carry out the raffle.

He said: "The partnership with #PlayersTogether supporting NHS Charities Together at a time of such vital need has made us all at eBay UK very proud. We have been inspired by the players’ collective approach and are delighted to hand over our platform to support their brilliant initiative."
