Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane Stadium will get a makeover this Saturday, as it supports Sheffield’s Breast Cancer Care by going bright pink for the day.

The ‘Turn The Lane Pink’ campaign will see players and match officials warming up in pink Breast Cancer t-shirts, with a special Sheffield United pink shirt available for fans to buy from the club’s superstore.

And the club is asking its fans to show their support for the cause by wearing pink to the game too - pink shirts, ties, flowers - and by flying pink flags in support of those affected by breast cancer.

Dave McCarthy, Operations Director at Sheffield United, said: “We want the whole club to get behind this initiative and raise awareness and funds for this charity, which does so much to help those affected by breast cancer, and at the same time provide information to our female, and indeed male, supporters, of the need to check themselves regularly.”

Sarah Herrett, from Breast Cancer Care, said: “We’re incredibly grateful for Sheffield United’s continued support. The funds raised will go towards providing vital care, support and information to anyone affected by breast cancer, every day, from day one.”
