Saints to wear Scope logo against United

By SFC Media Tue 16 May Saints vs Man Utd

Southampton's players will wear the Scope logo on their kit during tomorrow night's game against Manchester United, after Virgin Media donated their shirt sponsorship to the disability charity for the match.

Saints will take on United in front of a packed St Mary's crowd, as well as an internationally-televised audience, with Virgin Media using the night to promote the work of its charity partner.

Scope support more than a quarter of a million disabled people and their families every year, promoting equality and raising awareness of key issues.

As part of the night, Paralympic gold medallist and avid football fan Richard Whitehead MBE will help coach five Saints supporters for a half-time penalty shootout to raise up to £25,000 for Scope.

Virgin Media will donate £5,000 to Scope for every goal scored in the shootout, while they will also be holding collections for the charity at the match.

Brigitte Trafford of Virgin Media said: “Fans are the heart of football and that means disabled fans too.

“Giving Scope this platform at one of Southampton’s biggest matches highlights the issue of disability and football.”
