Here's the special Southampton 'Breast Cancer Now' Shirt.

Veho already has a partnership with Breast Cancer Now, supporting them with the sale of special pink editions of its products. The electronics firm will donate a minimum of £25,000 to the research charity in 2015/16, aiming to surpass this amount with fundraising events around the game.

Steven Lewis, CEO & founder of Veho, said: “Like many others, close family members of mine have been affected by cancer and Breast Cancer Now is a charity close to my heart. I wanted Veho to play a small part in raising awareness and funds for a worthy charity that believes if we all act now, by 2050, no one will die from breast cancer.”

Ralph Krueger, chairman of Southampton Football Club, added: “Southampton Football Club is delighted to help support a charity that is so close to the heart of our main sponsor, Veho. As a club that prides itself on its values and principles, it gives us great pride to be able to act as the vehicle to help raise awareness for such a worthwhile charity and to take Breast Cancer Now’s message to a global audience.”

The unique shirts worn by players will be signed and made available for auction with all funds raised being donated to Breast Cancer Now.
