Coventry City will be supporting Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign at this Saturday's game against West Bromwich Albion.
The Rainbow Laces campaign aims to create a broader, louder and more impactful movement for the involvement of LGBTQ+ communities in sport, with the hope that every conversation will take them one step closer to achieving their ambition of making sport everyone’s game.
The Rainbow Laces campaign is running from Thursday 25th November until Sunday 12th December, with Rainbow Laces Day falling on Wednesday 8th December, and is being supported by clubs from across the professional pyramid in the United Kingdom.
The Sky Blues will be showing their support for the game against West Bromwich Albion this Saturday, 4th December, with kick-off at 12:30pm
Celebrating LGBTQ+ inclusion within the EFL, Stonewall’s campaign focus this year is ‘Lace Up and Speak Up'.
Over a million of us have laced up with Rainbow Laces in support of LGBTQ+ equality in sport. But many in this community still feel unwelcome in sport and fitness settings, as people bully, belittle and exclude, making them feel out of place. Coventry City believe that football is for all, and everyone should be welcome at our games.
Laces have brought the awareness. Now we all need to speak up with those around us and make sure everyone feels empowered to support with pride.
Fans can expect to see rainbow coloured corner flags, captain’s armbands and digital assets around the stadium in support of the campaign, as well as in our matchday programme.
