Millwall will welcome television legend Jeff Stelling when he marches across the country for Prostate Cancer UK for a fourth time later this summer – and we are delighted to say that he’ll be coming to The Den!
After raising more than £1m walking across the UK in 2016, 2017 and 2019, the long-serving Sky Sports presenter is set to return in August and September to support Prostate Cancer UK.
This year he will be taking on four walking marathons in four regions, starting in the North East on 30th August, heading to Yorkshire on the 31st, before marching through Merseyside on 1st September.
His March for Men finishes up in London on 4th September with a route from Millwall to Tottenham Hotspur. He will also visit Queens Park Rangers, European champions Chelsea and by the end of the final leg would have walked more than 100 miles in a week.
His aim? To fund lifesaving research to improve testing, treatments and care for those affected by the most common cancer in men.

Spurs will be a fitting finale on a day that Stelling pays tribute to club legend Ray Clemence, who sadly died last year after a long battle with prostate cancer.
“One in eight men in the UK will get prostate cancer in their lifetime. I deal in stats, but that one still shocks me. This is our Dads, partners, brothers, grandads, uncles and friends,” Jeff said.
“That’s why I wear the Prostate Cancer UK ‘Man of Men’ badge. That’s why we’ve marched across the UK three times, helping raise more than £1m for crucial research to beat prostate cancer. And that’s why I’d love you to join me this summer. As ever we’ll visit some iconic clubs and I’m hoping a few familiar faces will join me along the way.
“Last year, we lost the great Ray Clemence to prostate cancer. A terrific goalkeeper and a terrific human being.
“I also lost my mate, Lloyd Pinder, to the disease a few months earlier. I met him on the second day of my very first march for Prostate Cancer UK up in Yorkshire. This highlights once more what an indiscriminate disease this is, and it’s for men like Lloyd and Ray, their families and everyone affected by prostate cancer that we march again.”
