How do I raise money by just watching football?

Football Conference sponsors, Vanarama, will donate £10,000 towards the fight against prostate cancer if 50,000 people attend a match across the Conference leagues throughout the weekend.

This season we are the official charity partner of Non-League Day in 2014. The annual event will see hundreds of football clubs signing for Men United by raising money and awareness of a disease that kills one man every hour.

The Non-League Day team saw how we have built important relationships with clubs across The Football League and wanted to help us extend our reach to grass roots football.

James Doe, founder of Non-League Day said: “We had a really positive chat with and it was refreshing to see how they [Prostate Cancer UK] wanted to reach supporters and players at all levels of our national game.

“We hope that non-league clubs and their supporters will also wish to adopt the charity for the day and look forward to hearing from any who would like to host themed events or fundraising activities.”

To support your local team and help give prostate cancer a real beating this weekend use the Non-League Day's match finder to watch a game near you.

About Non-League Day

Non-League Day was set up in 2010 with the aim of boosting attendances at non-league grounds across the country on an international weekend when the country’s top clubs have the week off. The event has become a well-established part of the football calendar and is now in its fifth year.

Premier League and Championship clubs and their players often promote matches at neighbouring non-league clubs, with many offering special events and incentives to get extra people in.
