Turning football fields in NSW purple for pancreatic cancer

During the month of June, football players from clubs and codes across the nation will be pulling on their purple socks to help raise awareness for a disease that is on track to become the third most common cancer killer in Australia this year.

The #PlayinPurple campaign is in its 7th year and continues to grow since inception with a record 7800 players wearing purple socks to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer in 2020.

#PlayinPurple 2021 runs on two weekends in June and we encourage all players and teams to participate with a simple change of your local club socks to purple socks for one round.

The PanKind purple socks are $15 per pair and the funds raised will go toward pancreatic cancer research and patient support.

We are excited that clubs in NSW can again get involved this year thanks to the support of your governing body, Football NSW and associations MWFA, SSFA, ESFA, NSFA and South Coast Football.

Find out more about the campaign on our website Play in Purple - PanKind

Please order online in teams and the socks will be delivered straight to your address. Socks can be ordered from
