Melbourne Victory-s clash with Wellington Phoenix on Wednesday night holds extra significance as the club goes even more blue than usual in support of cancer research.
The boys have dressed themselves in a different shade of blue to support men-s cancers for the national awareness and fundraising campaign, Blue September.
Captain Kevin Muscat and his team have all purchased blue Van Heusen shirts from shirtcentral.com – with $5 from each shirt going directly to Blue September beneficiaries, the Australian Cancer research Foundation and Bowel Cancer Australia.
Melbourne Victory-s squad are Blue September ambassadors and appear in the Blue September Community Service Announcements (CSA), which are airing nationally this month.
It was on the shoot for the CSA that Melbourne Victory captain Kevin Muscat heard about Van Heusen-s support of the campaign and made sure the other boys got behind the promotion by buying a shirt.
Melbourne Victory is continuing their support of Blue September this Wednesday September 15 by highlighting the campaign throughout their game against Wellington Phoenix at AAMI Park.
AAMI Park will be lit a dazzling blue for the evening and activities will include blue face painting, the Blue September CSA shown on the screens and an interview during halftime with Blue September spokesperson and TV personality Mark Holden who has recently gone through his own battle with cancer.
