CLUBS BACKING RAINBOW CAMPAIGN
EFL clubs across the country are uniting 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.
Starting yesterday and until next Saturday, 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.
The EFL have changed their logo to a bespoke rainbow coloured version.
EFL chief executive Shaun Harvey said: “The EFL is once again fully supporting Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign, with all 72 clubs coming together to raise awareness and visibility of an important issue.
“The EFL continues to be committed to providing a match day experience that is safe and welcoming to all supporters across all of our competitions.”
