2011-2012 Home Premier League "Poppy Match" Player Shirt
Since season 2009-2010, Liverpool participated in the Royal British Legion annual event of commemorating the Remembrance Day. In season 2009-2010, Liverpool didn't don any poppy logo on the shirt which amassed quite some criticism. In season 2010-2011, Liverpool's third shirt worn on 21 November 2010 against Stoke City donned with embroidered poppy on the chest of the shirts.
In season 2011-2012, Liverpool F.C. chose to commemorate the Remembrance Day in the Premier League home fixture on 5 November 2011 against Swansea City. This season, the shirt donned with heat-pressed poppy instead.
