One man dies every 45 minutes of prostate cancer in the UK
That’s two men every match.
If you’re over 50, black or have a family history of prostate cancer, you’re at a significantly higher risk.
But with your help, we can change the game for men. Our badge represents the whole football family – fathers, sons, daughters, partners, uncles and friends – in the fight against the disease. Like Jeff Stelling and Pep Guardiola, thousands of fans and professionals are wearing the badge to show – no matter what team we support – we are united for one cause.
Together, we will relegate prostate cancer forever.

As the transfer window closes, we're proud to announce our own big signings to the cause – including England legends Frank Lampard and Ray Clemence, the entire Southend United team and four fierce Championship rivals. They join a huge football family uniting together to help us relegate prostate cancer forever.
