Nottingham Forest Get Men United

Thu 1st Oct 2015 | Football Industry Events

Prostate Cancer UK will break new ground this week by infiltrating the Nottingham Forest Megastore ahead of their Men United Match Day against Hull City on Saturday.

In the lead up to the big day the online shop - shop.nottinghamforest.co.uk - will be selling the charity’s iconic Men United merchandise whilst fans visiting The City Ground on Saturday will also have the opportunity to buy in store amongst other activities which are taking place on the day.

Men United will be out in full force, collecting funds for Prostate Cancer UK, the Official Charity Partner of The Football League, and holding a static bike challenge.

Players will be doing their bit by wearing Prostate Cancer UK shirts in the warm up, with Forest manager Dougie Freedman donning one of the iconic man of men pin badges.

James Beeby, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “Men United is about men joining together to fight a common opponent – prostate cancer. One man dies every hour from this disease but it’s been proven by taking this issue to terraces up and down the land that we are starting to make a difference.

“This exciting new venture is a wonderful opportunity to continue our groundbreaking work within the beautiful game standing side by side with one of the country’s most iconic clubs.

“The power of sport – and in this case football – consistently helps us reach out to men and their friends and families, and by wearing our new merchandise range and raising money and awareness, Nottingham Forest’s fantastic fans can look great and help us fashion change.”

Nottingham Forest ambassador John McGovern, said: “It’s been great to work with Prostate Cancer UK to promote such a worthy cause in such an innovative way and we’re looking forward to integrating their exclusive Men United range into the club shop.

“We’re proud to be the first Football League club to offer our fans the chance to buy some of these unique products and at the same time raise money to help combat this terrible disease.”
