Manchester United Legends Team To Play Charity Match In Perth To Raise Cancer Awareness

Manchester United

Some of the biggest names ever to have worn Manchester United colours, a club that represents English football royalty are on their way to play a game in Perth. The team will include former players such as Teddy Sheringham, Paul Scholes, Denis Irwin and Dwight Yorke. The players will be part of a team that will face an all-star side of former Australian players in a match that will take place at nib Stadium in March.

Raising money for both UK and Australian charities

The match will raise money for the Foundation operated by Manchester United which works with young people in the United Kingdom. Some of the proceeds will also go towards local charitable organisation DT38 Foundation. DT38 was established by Tracy Tombides after her son Dylan passed away. Dylan Tombides was an Australian footballer who played with English Premier League team West Ham and died at the young age of 20, after battling testicular cancer.

Raising cancer awareness

The goal of the DT38 Foundation is to raise awareness of cancer and to battle against the stigma the come with men’s health, in particular testicular cancer. Dylan’s father Jim said it was a huge honour for the family to have Dylan’s foundation be chosen to be one of the nominated charities that will benefit from such a huge event. The Manchester United Legends team will be managed by Bryan Robson who was also a former Manchester United player and England captain.

Massive opportunity to educate young men

Natasha Evans, managing director of DT38 Foundation says the match was a huge opportunity to raise awareness about the need for young men to get tested for cancer. It was also an opportunity to educate young men about the need for them to conduct self-checks.
