8 January 2015

The London to Amsterdam Challenge for Prostate Cancer UK...

As the Official Charity Partner of The Football League, Prostate Cancer UK is providing Dale supporters with a European footballing adventure they don’t have to dream about.

The London to Amsterdam Challenge is calling on groups of friends to represent the club to join a star-studded peloton cycling from Leyton Orient FC to Dutch giants Ajax.

International trio Luther Blissett, Terry Butcher and Matt Holland will line up at The Matchroom Stadium in east London in the early hours of Friday 12 June 2015 for the third annual #L2A, aiming to raise over £250,000 to help save men’s lives.

The 145-mile event includes a half-time pit-stop at Colchester United FC before the squad set sail from Harwich at the end of day one. The second day, Saturday, June 13th takes in a serene sojourn along the pristine pathways of the Netherlands culminating in a finale at the Amsterdam ArenA.


Prostate Cancer UK spoke to new #MenUnited signing, former Ireland international Matt Holland about the Challenge…

"This cycling event is a new challenge for me but something I’m really looking forward to. I’ll bring some leadership to the talkSPORT team and it will be great to join some familiar faces in what’s sure to be a fun few days."

The London to Amsterdam Challenge is Prostate Cancer UK’s end of season Football League fundraiser. On Friday 12 June 2015, over 200 riders from across The Football League will join Matt Holland, Luther Blissett and Terry Butcher on the starting line at Leyton Orient FC riding 145 miles to the Amsterdam ArenA the home of the Dutch giants, Ajax on Saturday 13 June 2015 before celebrating with a night out in Amsterdam.
