How you can get involved

Prostate Cancer UK are thrilled to be teaming up again with Walking Football Scotland and the Walking Football Association to use the beautiful (walking) game to help fight prostate cancer. Looking at the statistics, it clear that prostate cancer exists in every walking football team in the UK - 1 in 8 men get prostate cancer, and 83% of men don't know their risk

There’s lots to look forward to over the coming season and we’re calling on clubs to host a tournament or an event raise vital awareness and funds to fight the disease which kills one man every 45 minutes. 

We can support you by providing a free Walking Football fundraising pack for your club, full of hints, tips and goodies to help you make the most of your event.

Register today to get your club's fundraising pack.

5 tips for organising a walking football tournament or festival

  1. Pay to play – open the event up to everyone for a donation of your choosing
  2. Fines for running – stick to the rules or get fined for a good cause
  3. Collection at half time – use our fundraising materials to bump up your total
  4. Crossbar challenge – a simple, easy to run fundraiser that everyone can play
  5. Post-match celebration – arrange an event nearby & hold a raffle for attendees
