With tannoy annoucements, information in the match day
programme, on the club's website and social media promoting the
cause to fans in attendance on the day.
This season football fans across England and Wales are being
urged to put aside their rivalries on the pitch and join Men United
in the fight against prostate cancer.
With the number of men affected by prostate cancer increasing at
an alarming rate, we urgently need to raise the profile of the
disease which affects 1 in 8 men at some time during their lifetime
and kills over 10,000 men a year. That’s one man every hour.
A new super team featuring football managers including Blackburn
Rovers’ Gary Bowyer, players, behind the scenes football staff and
fans are joining arms to encourage men everywhere to wise up to the
killer disease and take action.
