Crewe Alexandra are pleased to announce a new partnership with Prostate Cancer UK that will see the Football Club proudly sport the iconic Prostate Cancer UK branding on the sleeve of their shirt for the Emirates FA Cup First Round tie at Accrington Stanley tomorrow.
The leading men’s health charity will have their logo on the left sleeve of our FA Cup shirt and all of the match shirts will then be auctioned off for the charity.
Commercial and Marketing Manager James Beckett commented: “We’re delighted to be partnering with a household name like Prostate Cancer UK.
“As a charity they have done some fantastic work with the EFL in the past few years and we are proud to be joining forces with their team once again.”
Many people are unaware that prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men. One man will die from prostate cancer every 45 minutes in the UK - that’s over 11,500 men a year. Based on current trends, if we ignore prostate cancer and do nothing, this number will rise to over 14,500 men a year by 2026.
Jake Martens, Football Projects Manager at Prostate Cancer UK, said: ““It’s great to continue our relationship with Crewe Alexandra, who have been a longer supporter of Prostate Cancer UK’s work in football. On top of dedicated matchdays, participation in our annual Football to Amsterdam bike ride and support for Jeff Stelling’s March for Men in 2017, this is a great addition to our continued work together.
“To donate the sleeve sponsorship for this fixture is testament to the club’s morals and values and we look forward to working with them throughout this season and beyond.”
Earlier this year Prostate Cancer UK launched their new campaign, ‘Men, we are with you’, to celebrate everything great about men and highlight the special moments we lose when a man dies every 45 minutes from prostate cancer.
And Crewe manager David Artell has joined a host of managers up and down the country and worn the charity’s iconic ‘Man of Men’ pin badge on the touchline.
