NEWS: Coventry City v Swindon Town - CCFC show support for Prostate Cancer UK at this weekends tie with the Robins

17 March 2016

CCFC are encouraging fans to support Prostate Cancer UK at this weekend's League One fixture with Swindon Town...

This weekend’s fixture against Swindon Town is our designated ‘Men United’ game, where CCFC are proud to show club wide support for Prostate Cancer UK - the official charity partner of the Football League.

PCUK aims to reach millions of football supporters over the coming weeks, with activity across hundreds of stadiums on matchday to raise awareness of the disease which now affects 1/8 men in the UK - sadly, that is a death rate of 10,000 a year. 

As well as raising awareness, the partnership aims to raise funds which will help toward pioneering research and ways to aid and cure sufferers. Bucket collectors will be around the ground this Saturday ahead of kick-off as we look to support this great cause. 

Sky Sports News’ presenter Jeff Stelling is also standing up for the cause and will be including the Ricoh Arena in his tour of 31 football clubs around the country. The face of Soccer Saturday will be completing 10 walking marathons in 10 days, from boyhood club Hartlepool United to Wembley Stadium between March 21st-30th, including Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena on route. 

Clocking more than 250 miles, Jeff’s Men United March will see the 60-year-old check in at the Ricoh Arena on Sunday, March 27th. See more details and how to sign up at menunitedmarch.org.

Meanwhile, the Amsterdam bike ride is back too – with an intrepid team of Sky Blues supporters taking on a two day, 145 mile cycle ride to the Netherlands this June to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.
