Collect For Men United On Match Day & Get A Free Ticket!

1 February 2018

Sign for Men United and help stop prostate cancer being a killer.

The EFL is teaming up with Prostate Cancer UK for another season to fight the most common cancer in men through football.

This season hundreds of volunteers will be collecting money outside stadiums up and down the country for Prostate Cancer UK. Join the team at The Alexandra Stadium on Saturday 17 February to raise vital funds and awareness of the disease and receive a free ticket to the Colchester United match that same day in return.

1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer, while the odds for black men are just 1 in 4. That means that one man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer in the UK; over 11,000 men per year.

Alex Manager Dave Artell said: "I’m proud to support Prostate Cancer UK and their work in football by wearing the Man of Men pin badge on the touchline. 

"I lost my Grandad to Prostate cancer two years ago so know first-hand how it affects families.  I wish he was still with us and I know that Prostate Cancer UK are helping that in respect with the work that they are doing. 

"We have a match day designated to Prostate Cancer UK every season and I’d urge all our fans to dig deep when they see the collectors outside the ground. If you volunteer to collect for the charity you’ll also get a free ticket to the Colchester match; it’s a really great way to get involved – help stop prostate cancer being a killer and see us play for free. 

"If you want to get a badge like mine, text ‘BADGE’ to 70004 to donate £5 and Prostate Cancer UK will send you a Man of Men pin to wear with pride in the stands."
