Emirates turns red to 'Lace Up, Save Lives'

OK something positive for sunday
from arsenal website;

"Emirates Stadium will turn (RED) this Sunday as Arsenal play host to Manchester United, in a game which sees both clubs show their support for the (NIKE) RED ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ partnership that raises funds to help fight HIV/AIDS in Africa.

(RED) goal-nets - a first in the Barclays Premier League, will sit between the posts for the match and a giant (RED) lace will be hung around the middle tier of the stadium to ‘tie the stadium together’.

Players from both clubs, including Cesc Fabregas, Andrey Arshavin, Theo Walcott, Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand, will wear (RED) laces in their boots during the game and both sides will run out onto the pitch wearing (RED) track jackets to show their commitment to the partnership.

And fans too can show their support for the initiative by raising (RED) ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ cards as the players take to the pitch before kick-off, uniting both sets of supporters and the global TV audience to raise awareness of the partnership through the power of football.

The Nike and (RED) partnership invites people to ‘Lace Up. Save Lives’ by purchasing a pair of (NIKE) RED laces. One hundred percent of the profits from (NIKE)RED laces is split equally between The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, which funds AIDS programs that provide medicine for those living with HIV, and football-based community initiatives that deliver education and understanding around HIV/AIDS prevention."
