Owls host Men United!

18 March 2014


Supporters of Sheffield Wednesday are offered a unique opportunity to follow in some legendary footsteps as the inaugural Men United Cup invites them to lace up their boots and compete at Hillsborough!


The Owls are among six clubs who will host exclusive tournament days, alongside Accrington Stanley, Derby County, Doncaster Rovers, Exeter City and Leyton Orient] thanks to the flourishing partnership between the Football League and its Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK.

For just £250.00, a squad of up to ten can enjoy a dream date in S6 on Sunday 4 May in the regional seven-a-side tournaments. All proceeds will go towards fighting a disease that affects one in eight men sometime in their life and kills over 10,000 men a year.

As well as awards for the top fundraisers, there will be some legendary opponents lying in wait for the victors.

Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK, said: “We have the ability to make dreams come true and this a great opportunity for fans to follow in their heroes’ footsteps and play on hallowed turf.

“As well as an amazing experience for those who take part, the funds raised will help men and their families affected by prostate cancer.

“These special days are part of a bigger partnership between Prostate Cancer UK and the Football League as we call upon all men across the country to join Men United in the fight against a common rival.”

Owls legend David Hirst added:: “I was proud to run out at Hillsborough during my time at the club and it’s great to be part of an exciting event for such a great cause.

“The fans are the lifeblood of clubs up and down the country and I know it will be amazing for them to emerge from the tunnel and emulate those heroes they watch from the terraces. May the best team win!”
