The Czech floorball club Chodov, has changed the elite team jerseys from blue to pink and also reformed their club identity for this October. With the pink colour they are supporting the Pink Bubble foundation that is helping young people fight against cancer.
Both the men’s and women’s team will wear a unique pink jersey throughout October. The first matches in pink shirts took place on Sunday, 6th of October. Chodov is also collecting money from the spectators to a special money box. Both elite teams also agreed to contribute 500 korunas for each scored goal during October. The campaign will culminate in a TV match in November, when Chodov will play a Men’s Super League match against Mlada Boleslav at their home arena. Finally, the jerseys of elite Chodov stars, such as Tom Ondrušek, Mikuláš Krbec, Marek Matejčík, Martina Řepková and Nelá Jiráková, will go to electronic auction. The money collected during October is allocated to support a winter sports camp for cancer patients, organised by the Pink Bubble.
