Right now across the UK there are around 6,500 people waiting for an organ transplant and on average, three people die each day because of a shortage of organ donors.

For people in black, Asian and minority ethnic communities the situation is even more critical. They wait longer than white patients for kidney transplants due to a lack of suitable organs.

We want to blow the whistle on these figures and do something about it.

That’s why we’re supporting NHS Blood and Transplant’s campaign alongside other football and rugby clubs, sports governing bodies and other organisations to ask you, our fans, to join the people in the UK who are already registered as organ donors.

By donating your organs after you die, you could save or improve the lives of up to nine people, and even more if you donate tissue or give the gift of sight.

How you can help:

• Sign up as an organ donor online at or by calling 0300 123 23 23

• Talk about organ donation with your family, and make sure they know what you want, and understand what they want too

• Share our campaign posts on Facebook and Twitter using #SignForLife and help us reach even more people

Organ donors save lives and together we can make a difference. Sign up today
