Football unites for Rainbow Laces campaign

Nov 30, 2017 | News


All 92 League Clubs are supporting Stonewall’s initiative with various activities including rainbow-coloured captains’ armbands, laces and programme adverts.

Rovers will be supporting the campaign on Saturday at our home fixture with Rotherham United.

In a league first, EFL Clubs will also be proudly displaying rainbow-coloured corner flags. In addition, England Women’s televised World Cup qualifier against Bosnia & Herzegovina at the Banks’s Stadium last Friday 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.
