Coventry City FC have teamed up with blood cancer charity DKMS in a bid to register fans as potential lifesavers. 

At the game this Saturday a match-day donor registration event will be held at Coventry City’s Fan Zone. It will give supporters the opportunity to register as a blood stem cell donor and potentially save the life of someone suffering with a blood cancer.

Anyone in the UK aged between 17 and 55 and in general good health can register with DKMS. To register, the charity asks potential blood stem cell donors to give consent and a two minute swab sample from the inside of their cheek. If you have missed the pre-game match-day event, you can register online HERE 

Coventry City FC’s, Head of Marketing, Mark Hornby, said: “We are delighted to be supporting DKMS, as this is a cause that can make such an amazing difference to those suffering from a blood cancer.

"Registering as a potential blood stem cell donor only takes a few minutes but it is so important for those seeking a matching donor. Supporters can become potential lifesavers by taking the time before the game to swab and register with the charity at our next home match on February 25. It could be one of the most important things you ever do.”
