Millwall and QPR have joined to partner up with Prostate Cancer UK for the campaign of 2018/19. The clash of Wednesday marks the two clubs first meeting who has promised that this season they will unite to support the bid of charity to stop prostate cancer being a killer. The match will see the charity’s iconic ‘Man of Men’ take center stage. They will be on Rangers’ shorts, with Ground Construction Limited (GCL). They will be generously donating the sponsorship position to Prostate Cancer UK for the fixture.
The volunteers of the Prostate Cancer UK will be around Loftus Road during the campaign as well as before the game. They will do activities to raise awareness of this disease that kills a man in every 45 minutes in the UK. The fans of both the teams can also show their support to this battle by donating. They can also donate by buying ‘Man of Men’ pin badges, one of the most iconic of charity.
The partnership of both teams has been backed by Neil Harris the Millwall chief and Steve McClaren the R’s boss. Both will wear their ‘Man of Men’ pin badges with pride in the dugouts. McLaren said, “The prostate cancer is one of the most common type of cancer in men and because of this one man is dying in every 45 minutes means two men every game.”
