Luton Town change shirt sponsor to Prostate Cancer UK

“Mick, we are with you”. That was the message from Prostate Cancer UK and Luton Town after the charity became the official shirt sponsor for the clubs Championship clash with Cardiff City on Saturday 27 November 2021.

After Hatters hero, Mick Harford, went public with news of his prostate cancer diagnosis, the club rallied to support him, and in addition to the shirt sponsorship, 61 Luton Town staff members, including first team manager Nathan Jones, took part in Prostate United in November 2021.

Prostate United is a running a cycling challenge for staff members in football clubs that has united clubs across the UK in the fight against the disease. The club raised over £28,000 during the challenge.

Prostate Cancer UK have worked closely with the club for several years, holding a series of matchday collections and staff and supporters have taken part various fundraising events. In 2015, Luton hosted Wycombe Wanderers in the newly-named Prostate Cancer UK Stadium, drawing plaudits for their lifesaving work.

Harford added: “I’ve been overwhelmed by the level of support I’ve had in recent months, and this latest gesture from the staff at the football club is amazing. Together with Nathan Jones, Gary Sweet and the board, I wanted to use my situation to help other people, and the most satisfying thing for me is to hear from so many Luton Town fans and football supporters in general who have been to get themselves checked."
