Scunthorpe United is delighted to announce that we will be supporting Cancer Research UK, which will see the charity’s logo on the front of the playing shirts for the 2021/22 season.
The agreement will see the club not only promoting the charity through branding on the home, away and third shirts this season, but also raising awareness through marketing activity and activation around events throughout the season.
Scunthorpe United Chairman, Peter Swann, commented: "We are delighted Cancer Research UK have agreed to partner with us to promote the charity which does so much fantastic work to help battle a disease which one in two people will get in their life.
“The charity has been severely impacted through the pandemic and we want to help raise their profile once again to continue the battle to beat cancer which impacts so many lives in different ways.”
Cancer Research UK Head of New Partnerships, Moira Quinn, commented, “We are so grateful for the support from Scunthorpe United and their desire to help raise awareness of our vision to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. We wish the club all the best for the 2021/22 season.”
