It’s that time once again; Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October
As most of you are aware The Metro Women’s Soccer League is one of the largest female soccer organizations in the country. We strongly feel the importance to unite as women to help and look out for our fellow sisters. Most of us have been affected or touched by someone with Breast Cancer and this is an opportunity to join together in honouring our loved ones and making a real difference.
We invite all teams/members to get the PINK OUT for all affected and to support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
The MWSL will support and encourage any team who would like to show their support throughout October by wearing Pink jerseys, Pink accessories during your games. The league will ease up on rules regarding under garment and colouring of accessories providing that no safety issues are created, teams are mindful that jerseys must be numbered and colours are distinguishable between teams.
We urge teams to use the following: Pink game balls, Pink warm up/sideline pinnies, Pink banners, wearing Pink accessories such as Pink sweat, hair and arm bands, Pink pro wrap, Pink boots and/or shoelaces, Pink gloves and tape. Find a way find to display it on the field or sideline.
The MWSL will contribute 5 (five) $50 prizes towards your efforts to raise money for Breast Cancer research. For a chance to win, send in your best “PINK” post-game photo to firstname.lastname@example.org. Including game officials in Pink and your fans donned in Pink in photos will enhance your chance for a prize.
