Stonewall FC and Virgin Atlantic FC are set to celebrate diversity and inclusion in a historic first fixture between the two clubs at London Marathon Community Track (LMCT) on Sunday, July 31 with kick off at 3pm.

This weekend, within the peak of the Women’s Euros and fresh off the heels of Pride Month, Stonewall FC will host Virgin Atlantic FC in what promises to be a fixture championing diversity and inclusion in football and beyond.

The fixture aims to raise awareness of inclusion in the game, highlighting the important work of both organisations and signifying their commitment to the community. The match will also raise funds to split equally between the Virgin Atlantic Foundation and Crawley Pride.

Alex Baker, Stonewall FC Chair, said: ‘’We are a club that wholeheartedly believes in the power of football not just to bring people together but also its ability to change the world for the better. At the heart of this is collaboration and we are super excited to welcome more allies into our community and work with organisations such as Virgin Atlantic that share our values and goals.’’

Estelle Hollingsworth, Chief People Officer at Virgin Atlantic FC, added: “We are really looking forward to meeting Stonewall FC on the pitch to celebrate diversity and inclusion at such a monumental time for the LGBTQ+ community.

“I am incredibly proud of Virgin Atlantic FC’s commitment to championing this cause and their dedication to fundraising for matters that are close to all our hearts.”
