October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month not only in the United States, but around the world.

Las Celestes

Las Celestes Director Ricardo Cortés Tiscareño tells us his squad will be using pink pom poms throughout the month.

Additionally, this month the Mexican Soccer Federation (FEMEXFUT) has launched a campaign to support the fight against the breast cancer. Players will wear pink ribbons and goalies will wear pink gloves. Pink soccer balls will be used. Fans will have an opportunity to buy pink merchandise with a percentage of the proceeds going to support breast cancer awareness campaigns.
