England squad to wear limited-edition shirts as part of FA auction supporting Alzheimer's Society
The England squad will wear a unique pre-match top ahead of the 150th Anniversary Heritage Match against Scotland at Hampden Park. The shirt will be auctioned off to raise funds for Alzheimer's Society.
The Scottish Football Association is hosting the fixture to celebrate their significant anniversary by replaying the world’s oldest international fixture.
Ahead of the occasion, the Three Lions will nod to their own heritage by donning a jersey bearing the original crest from the first Scotland v England meeting in 1872.
The limited-edition shirts supplied by Nike will not be retailed but instead be auctioned to raise vital funds for The FA’s official charity partner, Alzheimer’s Society.
England men’s captain Harry Kane sported the replica for the first time during a visit to Hamilton Crescent in Glasgow, the scene of the goalless draw that was played out on 30 November 1872, alongside Scotland counterpart Andrew Robertson.
The venue, home of West of Scotland Cricket Club, is just six miles from Hampden Park where England will take on the Auld Enemy for the 116th occasion on Tuesday.
The one-off auction in support of Alzheimer’s Society is now live and will run until 8pm on Saturday 30 September.

The FA’s partnership with Alzheimer’s Society is helping to raise vital funds towards research that will help transform the future of dementia diagnosis.
Diagnosis rates hit a five year low during the pandemic and have stagnated ever since, leaving tens of thousands of people living with undiagnosed dementia. Dementia devastates lives.
1 in 3 people born today will go on to develop it in their lifetime. It’s the UK’s biggest killer, but too many people still think dementia is just a sign of normal ageing, unsure of the symptoms, and too afraid to visit their GP.
Alzheimer's Society and The FA partnership
We are The FA’s official charity partner. Over the partnership we are working closely together to help football fans with dementia remain part of the game.
