Swap Fratton Park For The Amsterdam ArenA

A chance for Pompey fans to get on their bikes for a good cause

30 October 2017

Prostate Cancer UK

Leave your rivalries on the pitch and get on your bike to help stop a disease that kills one man every 45 minutes.

Two weeks before the World Cup kicks-off – on June 1-3 2018 – hundreds of football fans will take part in Prostate Cancer UK and the EFL’s Football to Amsterdam bike ride.

And you could be one of them.

Putting rivalries aside, supporters will unite to ride 145 miles over two days before finishing at the Amsterdam ArenA.

Not only is it a chance to represent Pompey, but with the help of fans from across the EFL, it’s an opportunity to turn the game around for men everywhere.

This is a game of two halves and your mates and you can make the difference to relegate the most common cancer in men in the UK.

Last year 380 football fans took part and raised £600,000, which can pay for more than a year’s worth of life-changing research, so this really is a ride of a lifetime.

Tracey Leaburn, a Charlton supporter, did it for her father and is already building her squad for 2018.

She said: “Last year’s ride was extremely emotional. I did it for my dad, and every man and their family fighting prostate cancer. We can’t wait to go again next year.”

Once signed up, riders are supported every pedal of the way and will join an elite club to receive a Prostate Cancer UK cycling jersey plus a unique finishers medal when they cross the finish line.

There are two start locations to choose from – one in London at the Olympic Park and the other in Yorkshire at Barnsley’s Oakwell Stadium.

So what are you waiting for? It’s time to get on your bike and represent the Blues in the biggest ride in football.

Sign up by the end of October with the code EARLYBIRD50 and get £50 off registration.
