FC Basel starts Jersey Auction for Breast Cancer Prevention

Every year there are 6200 new cases of breast cancer in women and about 50 in men in Switzerland. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, FC Basel 1893 women displayed their matchday graphics in pink to raise awareness of the importance of prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Now we are at the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and the club is once again bringing the topic into focus with the auction of four exclusive FCB breast cancer shirts.

The proceeds will go entirely to the breast cancer screening programme of the Basel Cancer League. As part of the programme, all women residents in the canton of Basel-Stadt and cross-border commuters between the ages of 50 and 74 are invited every two years to undergo a breast X-ray examination (mammography).
