Pedal for Prostate Cancer UK

9 April 2013

As hundreds of football fans are set to pedal across Europe for Prostate Cancer UK, the Owls are asking our supporters if they are up for the challenge.


Fans, players and club officials will take to the saddle for a unique two day "Total Football" themed, 155-mile challenge from London to Amsterdam, raising funds for the Football League’s official charity for 2012/13.

Kicking off on Friday 14 June, the route will pass through rural England, before crossing The Channel at Harwich and to Dutch Zeeland.

Former England and AC Milan striker, Luther Blissett, has already signed up, and other footballing legends are expected to follow.

Luther said: "Rivalry between clubs can be fierce, and although this isn't meant to be a race, I am sure there'll be a sprint to reach the finish line, but we'll definitely be all on the same team when it comes to raising awareness and funds for prostate cancer."

SWFC’s CSR Development Manager Spencer Taylor said: “We are proud to be playing our part in supporting The Football League’s Official Charity Partnership with Prostate Cancer UK.

“We would like to encourage our fans to sign up for this amazing challenge both to represent Sheffield Wednesday and to support such a worthwhile cause.”
