Champions! Lions win back-to-back Cancer Deadline Day titles

Another show of outstanding generosity...

1 September 2021

Millwall Football Club has once again topped Cancer Deadline Day's giving League, after Lions fans clubbed together to raise more than £1,000 for a consortium of six cancer charities.

The Lions embraced the transfer window to call on their fans to "make a transfer for cancer" to help charities tackling the disease.

Millwall's supporters responded brilliantly, helping The Lions to finish clear of Arsenal, who were the top Premier League club, in second place, with Queens Park Rangers, Preston North end and Aston Villa's Ladies team completing the top five.

Although the giving table closed when the transfer window shut in England at 11pm on deadline day, fans are still able to make a donation by visiting

Cancer Deadline Day will benefit a consortium of six cancer charities, each of whom will receive a split of money raised.

The six charities are: Macmillan Cancer Support, Pancreatic Cancer UK, Prostate Cancer UK, The Ruth Strauss Foundation, Sir Bobby Robson Foundation and Young Lives vs Cancer.

Congratulations, Lions fans!
