CHAPS to appear on shirt on Tuesday night.Mens' health charity CHAPS will be on the front of the U's shirt for the match against Notts County on Tuesday night, having benefited from a great competition held by the club.
As the U's celebrate their 75th anniversary this season, we have seen a host of local companies take up the one-off shirt sponsorship opportunity at home games.
For the Notts County game, companies were able to pay £500 to not only guarantee themselves a fantastic hospitality package for the match against the Magpies and advertising at the game, but also the chance to be on the front of the shirt for the latest League One clash.
And, in a draw made by U's General Manager Tim Waddington, CHAPS charity were pulled out of the hat.
U's Sales Team Leader Michelle Tricker said: "We are delighted that CHAPS will have this opportunity on Tuesday night.
"We have worked harder than ever this season to help charities and other good causes in our local community and the shirt sponsorship package has been a successful part of that.
"All of the companies who entered the draw would have been great winners, but for us to back mens' health in this manner with CHAPS is a brilliant opportunity for everyone."
Charity director Professor Chris Booth said: "We need CHAPS to campaign for these because too many men die prematurely from illness that are preventable and curable if only men knew what to look out for and if better health services were provided.
"If men are unaware of lifestyle risks and basic healthcare knowledge, they have no chance to make the changes that ultimately promote self-preservation.

Congratulations to CHAPS and we hope the other companies in the draw also enjoy the night!
