A Premier League representative stated: “The Premier League receives tons of requests from charities every season though we are not able to support all centrally. Clubs are permitted to support charitable causes, and we encourage clubs to do so, provided it is in abidance with Premier League rules.”
The Premier League has declined clubs permission to wear their away kits at home matches on Boxing Day in a proffer to raise funds for homeless charity Shelter.
Shelter have sent a detailed presentation to the nine Premier League clubs playing at home on December 26 about the issue of vagrant and how they could help.
Fresh home shirts were to be signed by players and then auctioned off.
