West Brom players to have "Help Chile" on shirts Tuesday

WEST BROMWICH, England: West Bromwich Albion players aim to raise money for the victims of the Chile earthquake on Tuesday with the words "Help Chile" on their shirts at a League Championship match against Sheffield Wednesday.

Albion's Chile defender Gonzalo Jara, who is sidelined with a broken bone in his foot, had to evacuate his wife and children from their apartment in Santiago when the earthquake struck Feb. 27.

West Brom does not have a regular shirt sponsor and is allowed to carry different logos on a match-by-match basis.

The club will encourage fans to donate to the Chile relief fundraising through Red Cross organizations. - AP
