West Brom wear Haiti appeal shirt logos

A football club is hoping to raise money for the Haiti relief effort by wearing appeal logos on their shirts.

West Bromwich Albion players had DEC Haiti Appeal emblazoned across their chests during the league match against Newcastle United on Monday.

The Disaster Emergency Committee is urgently appealing for support in the wake of Tuesday's earthquake.

West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace said the club felt it was an opportunity to play a part in helping to raise cash.

Up to 200,000 people may have died in the earthquake but the full figure is not known.

The 18 shirts worn by the squad will be auctioned off after the match to raise more funds.

The club were able to wear the logo as they have match-by-match sponsorship deals.
