What is the Friday soccer jersey? Cancer Research Fundraiser Returns November 20
This year Friday soccer jersey is slated for November 20, raising money for the Bobby Moore Fund – and the campaign pitted two North London heroes against each other.
Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs and Tottenham Hotspur forward Harry Kane encourage fans to wear a football shirt with pride at home, work or school and donate £ 5 to Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK.
England captain Moore, the 1966 World Cup winner, died of bowel cancer in 1993. His widow Stephanie Moore MBE established the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK shortly thereafter and the fund has since raised over £ 27million for bowel cancer research.
England stars Nobbs and Kane also took part in a challenge of who could put on the most shirts in 60 seconds – filmed before COVID.
“I never had the chance to meet Bobby, but all football fans know about his exploits as a player and a leader,” England captain Kane said.
“I will be wearing my Football Shirt on Friday to honor his memory and raise funds to help beat bowel cancer. It doesn’t matter who you support, just pick a shirt and get your friends and colleagues involved if you can. Let’s make Bobby proud.
“Football Shirt Friday is so important in raising money to help fight bowel cancer,” Nobbs added.
“It doesn’t matter if you are at home, at work or at school on Friday 20th November, just be sure to wear your football shirt and donate £ 5 for life-saving bowel cancer research . ”
