EFL Clubs to unite for Rainbow Laces to support LGBT Equality

Rainbow substitution boards and corner flags to be used at EFL Clubs

24 November 2018

Rainbow substitution boards and corner flags will be used at EFL Clubs.

EFL Clubs across the country will unite in their support of LGBT inclusivity by turning their substitution boards and corner flags rainbow coloured to raise awareness of Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign over a two-week period.

Starting today, between Saturday 24 November and Saturday 1 December, all EFL Clubs will select a fixture to highlight their continued support for LGBT fans, players and staff across the game with rainbow captain’s armbands, laces and programme adverts also being provided to Clubs.

The EFL has changed its logo to a bespoke rainbow coloured version for the campaign and has also created a series of short films to help share the stories of LGBT fans in the game - of which will be pushed out next week.

Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign is in support of LGBT equality with a key theme for this year focused on creating more allies to LGBT people in sport.

The EFL’s support for Rainbow Laces forms part of its wider LGBT work delivered in conjunction with Clubs through the Equality Code of Practice. This includes delivering activities, setting policies, and advising on recruitment and education at Clubs.
