Former sponsors add their thanks and look forward to ongoing relationship
Prostate Cancer UK would like to congratulate Millwall Football Club on their new sponsorship deal with Euroferries Express.
Director of Fundraising for Prostate Cancer Mark Bishop said: “The way Millwall made a conscious choice to give up having a commercial sponsor for one season to help save men’s lives is an inspiration to the whole of the football community.
Everyone at Prostate Cancer UK is totally humbled by what they have done for us and delighted to see that they have signed up a fantastic long-term partner.
Our partnership with Millwall helped us get our message to many thousands of football fans up and down the country, and it’s great to know that the club is keen to carry on playing its part in fighting prostate cancer.”
Having proudly worn the Prostate Cancer UK logo across their chests last season, the Lions will join the 71 other Football League clubs in further raising awareness of a disease that affects one in eight men during 2014/15.
During the upcoming campaign, Prostate Cancer UK’s distinctive Man of Men symbol will be included on every single player’s kit as part of his individual squad number – the first time ever that a charity’s logo has been included by a domestic league on every player’s strip.
Within each and every number will be the charity’s iconic image, the Man of Men, symbolising men of all walks of life coming together in the UK.
Lions supporters will also have the opportunity to purchase the branded numbers to accompany the replica shirts as the charity’s Men United v Prostate Cancer campaign gathers momentum.
Millwall CEO Andy Ambler added: "We have made some great friends at Prostate Cancer UK and are delighted to have played some part in helping with the vital work they do.
Our relationship will be ongoing this season and we will continue to support them in any way we can to deliver a crucial message about men's health."
