TOWN SUPPORT RAINBOW LACES CAMPAIGN

22 November 2019

Town are proud to be actively supporting the EFL and Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign.

Substitution boards, corner flags and captain armbands will be rainbow coloured for our match with Blackpool at Portman Road tomorrow.

Our starting XI tomorrow will have a team photo just before kick-off, holding an LGBT pennant, which will then be published on our social media pages.

The campaigns runs between 22 November and 8 December, and throughout this period, we will see a vast array of support not only an elite level but right across communities, as clubs work together to Make Sport Everyone’s Game.

Over the last three years football fans support has helped generate a huge amount of awareness around LGBT people in sport. 12 million people in Britain saw the campaign in November 2018, including 34 per cent of all sport fans.

More importantly, Rainbow Laces has helped enhance positive attitudes towards LGBT people in sport and persuaded allies to play their part.

Town are proud to be active supporters for LGBT+ inclusion within football. Anyone who witnesses or experiences homophobic, biphobic or transphobic behaviour, or any other form of discrimination at a match should report it to a steward or via the Kick It Out app.
