Football shows united support for Stonewall’s rainbow laces campaign

Ahead of todays Rainbow Laces campaign the EFL, Premier League, PGMOL, and The FA joined together to produce a unique rainbow photograph to show football standing together in support of LGBT+ inclusivity in sport.

All 92 League Clubs will be supporting Stonewall’s rainbow laces initiative which runs from November 25 – December 3 with various promotional opportunities including rainbow-coloured captains’ armbands, laces and programme adverts.

In a first, EFL Clubs will also be displaying rainbow-coloured corner flags at matches this weekend. In addition, England Women’s televised World Cup qualifier against Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Banks’s Stadium last night (November 24) saw all players wearing the rainbow laces.

The Premier League has introduced bespoke rainbow branding to its ball plinths, pitch flags, handshake boards, and timing boards. PGMOL will also be showing their support across the four divisions, with all match officials wearing rainbow laces.

Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign aims to make sport everyone’s game with national teams, leading clubs, professional players, fans and grassroots players from across football showing their support for LGBT+ people in sport.
