October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to show their support for the cause, the team has taken the initiative to wear pink armbands in support of the cause. Matsatsantsa will take to the pitch with a pink strip in their next two league matches in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.
The Tshwane based side is scheduled to play against Maritzburg United in Pietermaritzburg tonight, and Bloemfontein Celtic at home wearing the pink outfit. Cavin Johnson men kicked off the Awareness when they hosted Ajax Cape Town in the last 16 of the Telkom Knockout a fortnight ago by wearing pink armbands.
Team coach, Cavin Johnson voiced his full backing for the awareness. “We are delighted to be playing a part in the fight against breast cancer as a football club. There is so much that we can still do, but we are making an effort and I think the pink strip and armbands are a step in the right direction for us to show that we on board for the fight against breast cancer.”
The SuperSport operation will continue with each game through the month of October. The franchise as a whole will take part in the iThemba walkathon, a walk against breast cancer on 23 October 2013 at the Marks Park Sports Complex.
Matsatsantsa vice-captain, Thabo September is fully behind the Awareness and he encourages many to get behind the campaign. “This is certainly a great initiative and we at SuperSport fully support the Awareness. Hopefully our involvement will make some changes to those who suffer from Breast Cancer. As a matter of fact, my Aunt passed on from Breast Cancer and it really affected me having lost a family member. As a club, we really care and hoping to spread the message going forward,” said the SuperSport defender.
