Sports


Whether you’re a grass roots Sunday player or you strut your stuff on the hallowed turf of the Premier League, Movember has caught the imagination of the sporting community. If you favour the oval over the round ball, you’re also in good company. Mo’s have been sighted on all walks of sportsmen, ranging from jockeys and darts players, to Olympic medal winners and martial arts professionals.


Movember can motivate your sports club to have some fun and raise vital funds for men’s health.  Why not emulate your heroes from yesteryear and grow one for 2013?




FOOTBALL

The beautiful game got on board the Mo train like never before during 2012. From the Premier League to Hackney Marshes the Mo was King, with fans and players alike raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health. The Football League also put its substantial weight behind the campaign by encouraging clubs to sign up in their droves. 

In addition, there was considerable grass roots activity, including furry five-a-side competitions and coverage across the media including Sky Sports where football experts Graeme Souness and Paul Merson led the way on the Fantasy Football Show.



Among the more active clubs were Everton, Arsenal and regular mo-growers Stoke City who, like Birmingham City and Derby who ran half-time shave-downs.



RUGBY

As usual, the Movember team have been blown away by the support of the rugby world who tackled men’s health issues head on.
 
The Autumn Internationals, Aviva Premiership, Magners League and Heineken Cup saw players and fans harness the power of the moustache to help raise funds and awareness. Toby Flood helped kick off Moustache Season by growing this beaut of a Mo.



F1

The speed merchants of Formula One must surely be the fastest Mo’s on 4 wheels. Will anyone be able to keep up with McLaren’s Jenson Button who did a fine impression of a young Graham Hill.

Teams including Sauber, Force India and Red Bull were among the crews doing their bit in the pit lanes and on the circuits around the world.



CRICKET

Even though the cricketers were on a break it didn’t stop them chancing their arm at cultivating a moustache or two around the county circuit, while Jonny Bairstow and Graham Onions led the way for England on their tour of India.
 
This season could get hairy as England take on Australia in round two of the Ashes in Brisbane in Movember. Maybe they should re-name it the tAshes.
