Derby County release pink third kit in support of breast cancer awareness

Five pounds from each sale will be donated to charity

Derby County have partnered with Umbro to release a pink third kit in support of breast cancer awareness.

The colour of the new strip promotes Breast Cancer Now's #WearItPink fundraising campaign. Wayne Rooney and the rest of the Derby squad will wear it for the first time against Norwich City in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

October is breast cancer awareness month, and Derby are hoping to raise significant funds during the month through sales of their third kit.

Five pounds from every adult kit and three pounds from every junior jersey will go to charity - specifically Breast Cancer Now.

Derby County's new kit is just one breast cancer awareness campaign in place for October.


Across the UK, thousands of people will get behind the #WearItPink campaign on Friday October 23rd. The money raised by Breast Cancer Now will go towards funding cancer research and investing in care and support for all those affected by breast cancer.

Sami Colenutt, Head of Mass Participation at Breast Cancer Now, said: "We want to say a huge thank you to Derby County Football Club for supporting wear it pink.

"The money raised will help Breast Cancer Now continue to make possible vital breast cancer research and care - at a time when they have never been needed more.

"As such, there has never been a more vital time to grab that pink tie, pull on that pink tutu, or don that pink football shirt and take part in wear it pink on 23rd October to help us to raise urgently needed funds for Breast Cancer Now.

"The money raised will help us to continue to carry out world-class breast cancer research and to support people affected by the disease. Please register now at visit wearitpink.org"

Derby's new strip has also been endorsed by former One Direction singer Niall Horan.
