West Riding FA Supporting Rainbow Laces
West Riding FA are proud to support the Rainbow Laces campaign, which starts today and runs until 12 December, promoting the message that football truly is a game for all.
Each and every one of us has a part to play in making football a game for all. That can start with a simple act: put on your Rainbow Laces and start a conversation in your community about why you are supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign this year.
The Rainbow Laces Campaign will take place from Thursday 25 November until 12 December. 8 December will be this year’s landmark ‘wear your rainbow laces day’, where teams, leagues, businesses, schools and leading sports personalities all over the word will be getting together to wear their laces with pride.
Participation from your leagues, clubs and other organisations throughout the Rainbow Laces campaign shows support in your local community, and we hope you will show your support by engaging with the campaign throughout this period so that together, we can make football everyone’s game.
Wear Rainbow Laces at your game or show your support on social media by using the official hashtags #RainbowLaces and #RainbowLacesDay.
LGBTQ+ people are part of our club community. Let’s celebrate them, share their stories, and show our support. Be an active ally to the LGBTQ+ community: challenge slurs and report homophobia, transphobia and biphobia when you see it.
If you would like to purchase your Rainbow Laces, you can do so on the Stonewall website.
