One man dies of prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the UK

Our badge has graced the lapel of almost every football manager and pundit in recent years. Now, the same 'Man of Men' logo appears in the squad number of every player's shirt in the EFL and Prostate Cancer UK features in the famous computer games Football Manager and Fifa 2018.

Why? Because prostate cancer is killing one man every 45 minutes in the UK. That's two men during the time it takes to play a football match.

We need to give fans a team talk about football's biggest opposition - prostate cancer

Men over 50, black men and men with a family history of prostate cancer have a significantly higher risk. But you can help us change the game for men and stop prostate cancer being a killer.
