NEWS: Sky Blues supporting Rainbow Laces campaign this Friday

22 November 2018

Coventry City will be supporting the Stonewall 'Rainbow Laces' campaign this Friday against Peterborough United.

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 the campaign, with the board and flags on display at the Ricoh Arena this Friday.

The Matchday Programme PUSB will also show its support, with the Stonewall Rainbow Laces campaign on the cover, plus articles and adverts highlighlighting the campaign inside.

Michael Doyle will be wearing a special 'Rainbow Laces' Captain's armband, while players will also be able to wear Rainbow Laces in their boots for the game too.

Messages of support for the campaign will also be on the scoreboard at the Ricoh Arena, alongside the Stonewall campaign video which will be played during the evening and at half-time.

The Sky Blues will also be highlighting on Friday the ways that supporters can report any abuse that they are subject to or that they hear/see - by reporting it to their nearest steward or by emailing matchday@ccfc.co.uk. 

You can also report any abuse or discrimination using the Kick It Out Reporting app – which is available for Apple and android devices.

Coventry City Football Club is proud to support the campaign, and we are committed to making football safe and inclusive for everybody.
