Story

From Manchester United to Morecambe. Leeds United to Lincoln City.

Clubs from across the football pyramid are hitting the road, either on foot or on a bike, uniting on this daily fitness challenge to help beat prostate cancer. Why? Because prostate cancer kills one man every 45 minutes - the time it takes to play a half of football.

For the first time, FANS are invited to represent their football club alongside their kit men, physios and maybe even the gaffer.

Everyone taking on this challenge is helping to fund lifesaving research into better tests and treatments that could save thousands of our teammates, dads, partners and mates.

Our history:

Prostate United is the brainchild of Stephen Gilpin and Ross Burbeary, former colleagues at Rotherham United. In 2018, Stephen was inspired to support Prostate Cancer UK after losing his grandfather, Norman, to the disease. Since then hundreds of football club staff have united every year to take on Prostate United - and have raised over £340,000.

Sign up to Prostate United this season and help save lives with your club.
