Blackburn Rovers and Peterborough United fans are being urged to register their top lip at uk.movember.com in a bid to be their 12th Mo in the Crowd in support of Movember and Prostate Cancer UK.

Supporters who have donated their top lip to Movember for the month can win the coveted title of '12th Mo in the Crowd' and lead out their team at the npower Championship match between Peterborough United and Rovers live on Sky Sports, Saturday 17th Movember at 5.30pm.

I want to be a 12th Mo at the game, how do I enter?

  1. Join the Blackburn Rovers Movember team or the Peterborough United team
  2. Post your photograph and your motivation behind growing the Mo. 
It's that easy!

The winner of the coveted titles, as judged by club panel, will be rewarded for their mo growing efforts by leading out the team live on Sky Sports this Saturday.
The clubs support for Movember coincides with a year-long programme of activity in support of Prostate Cancer UK, which is The Football League's charity partner for the 2012/13 season.

Every penny raised through Movember and Prostate Cancer UK's partnership with The Football League will help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life.

With 250,000 men living with prostate cancer in the UK - enough to fill Wembley Stadium three times over - there is a real need to support those affected by the disease now and invest in research for the future.

Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, added: 'Each year we see more and more men dedicate their top lips to Movember and we're delighted that everyone has joined this growing movement. More than £15 million raised by Mo Bros and Mo Sistas across the UK last year came directly to Prostate Cancer UK to help us fund a wide range of medical research projects. Thanks to Movember, and the support of organisations like Peterborough United, we can help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life.'

Winners will be announced at the end of the week so make sure you visit www.prostatecanceruk.org/football for the latest news
