Vanarama and Prostate Cancer UK – MANarama

Early in September the Vanarama National League is becoming the MANarama National League, the first time an English Football division has changed its name as part of a PR campaign.

The campaign, by Alpaca Communications, saw the the league's title sponsor give up its naming rights for a charitable cause mid-season, to celebrate the fact that Prostate Cancer UK is the first official charity partner of the National League. As part of the re-branding, all televised National League games will feature MANarama corner and substitute boards, as well as all commentators and presenters referencing the re-naming on the likes of Gillette Soccer Saturday and BBC Final Score.

It received widespread coverage, including in the Sun, Mail, Mirror and on BBC and TalkSport, and #MANarama trended on UK Twitter during launch week.
