Cape Town - The Southern Kings will be going pink in support of cancer awareness for their PRO14 Round 7 match against Scarlets at the Nelson Mandela University’s Madibaz Stadium on Friday, October 26.

With October being cancer awareness month in South Africa, the Kings will, on a once-off occasion, play the match against Scarlets in pink rugby socks to raise awareness about the fight against cancer.

“Cancer is a disease that affects many people in South Africa and across the globe, including some of our own players, management and staff who have been directly or indirectly affected by the disease,” said Southern Kings Chief Operations Officer, Charl Crous.

To amplify the involvement in the fight against cancer, the Kings will also be supporting the Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer by leading the 5km walk in Port Elizabeth, starting and finishing at The Sun Boardwalk on Saturday, October 27.

Kings players will also be present at the Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer registration next Thursday and Friday.

“We as the Southern Kings are pleased to be part of this great initiative which marries well with our own #KingsCare campaign. As the Kings we support the fight against cancer and we are happy to be part of a campaign that raises awareness about cancer,” said Crous.

The match between the Kings and Scarlets will kick off at 19:00 SA-time.

Tickets for the match are available at TicketPro outlets at only R20.
