Oxford United team up with Mitre and the Football League for Movember

29 October 2014

Movember to start with new Mitre football as Oxford United welcome Wycombe Wanderers

Saturday’s home game against Wycombe Wanderers will see the debut of the new Mitre Delta V12S Fluo football which will be used across the Sky Bet Football League from this weekend through until March.  In a first for The Football League, on Saturday the new fluorescent yellow balls will also feature the iconic Movember “Mo” to celebrate the start of the Movember charity campaign. 

Each year, Movember challenges men to grow moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness and funds for beneficiaries including The Football League’s Official Charity Partner, Prostate Cancer UK.

Carl Davies, Managing Director of Mitre, comments: “We are pleased to have this unique opportunity to promote Movember with The Football League. We hope the ‘Mo’ featuring on our new Mitre Delta V12S match ball will raise awareness amongst the football community of this important charity and encourage both players and fans to take part.”

Football League Chief Executive Shaun Harvey adds: “This is another excellent example of Football League partners coming together to help promote a fantastic cause.  The arrival of the Fluo balls is a staging post in the Football League season. It is great to be able to mark the first weekend of the new footballs and the start of Movember in this way.”

Saturday will see the start of Movember and the Oxford United team is already top of the league for fundraising across the Football League. We want YOU to join the team. Help us raise money for Movember by joining the Oxford United team or donating right HERE
