Tottenham’s home shirt will look slightly different this afternoon when they take on Leicester City in the Premier League. Rather than displaying main sponsor AIA on the jersey as usual, Spurs will sport special edition shirts following the launch of Grant A Wish with AIA Better Lives Fund.

The charity shirt initiative is aimed at raising funds for good causes in Singapore and the club’s foundation. The home kit will instead see the AIA Better Lives Fund logo used on the shirts for the game against the Foxes.

The match-worn shirts will then be signed and auctioned by the players to raise vital funds for the AIA Better Lives Fund and Tottenham Hotspur Foundation. AIA has worked closely with the club for nearly a decade to support good causes across the Asia-Pacific region, using the power of sport to promote active and healthy lifestyles.

Donna-Maria Cullen, executive director of Tottenham Hotspur and trustee of the club’s foundation, said: “We are extremely proud of how our partnership with AIA continues to benefit the lives of so many, both in the Asia-Pacific region and within our own local communities.

“This is now the fourth occasion in the past seven years that we have partnered on a charity shirt initiative, each time raising vital funds and awareness for good causes through the unique and global platform that a Premier League match provides. We are looking forward to continuing our work with AIA in supporting children and families to live healthier, longer and better lives.”

On behalf of AIA Singapore, I would also like to thank all Singaporeans for their generous contributions towards the AIA Better Lives Fund and helping us to realise our mission in securing healthier futures for individuals, families and communities in Singapore.”
