The biggest ride in football is getting bigger!Over 200 football fans have now signed up to represent their club in Europe as part of Prostate Cancer UK’s ‘Football to Amsterdam’ charity bike ride next summer, being organised in conjunction with The Football League.
Sheffield United are the club leading the way with 13 riders signed up for the #MenUnited event that will raise money to help men who are affected by prostate cancer and crucially pave the way for new research and treatments. The Blades are closely followed by Wigan Athletic with 12 riders so far committed to saddling up for the cause and Ipswich Town on 11.

Formerly known as the ‘London to Amsterdam’ – 2016’s challenge has had a makeover. In an exciting new development, the charity ride will consist of 2 start locations to become the all-inclusive ‘Football to Amsterdam’.
Fans taking part in June’s 2016 #F2A have the choice of setting off on the 145 mile 2-day ride to Amsterdam from Barnsley’s Oakwell Stadium, or kicking off from the iconic Olympic Park in East London.
Last year’s event was a sell out with more than 250 riders – including former international trio Terry Butcher, Matt Holland and Luther Blissett together with Preston North End boss Simon Grayson.
Together, in 2015, the Men United squad raised a whopping £350,000 for Prostate Cancer UK. An amount which will go a long way in helping men who are affected by prostate cancer and crucially pave the way for new research and treatments.
