Rainbow Laces | City support Stonewall campaign
Cardiff City will be supporting Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign, which aims to use the power of football to make the game more accessible, enjoyable and welcoming to all supporters, when Swansea City visit CCS on Saturday afternoon.
Stonewall is a registered charity which supports the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people, while the Rainbow Laces campaign celebrates lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in football.
There will be corner flags, substitution boards, captain’s armbands and laces on the players’ boots, all in a rainbow theme, in a show of support for the campaign.
The Swansea City game forms part of a campaign led by Stonewall, which began on November 26th and will continue until December 13th.
Rainbow Laces has always campaigned to make sport everyone’s game. The events of 2020 have highlighted long-standing inequalities across society.
The events of this year have also shown us how much community and allyship matter. We’ve all seen the role that sport and fitness play in bringing us together, and so many LGBT people and allies have been doing amazing work to make sport everyone’s game.
Football can inspire a sense of belonging.— Cardiff City FC Foundation (@CCFC_Foundation) December 5, 2020
That's why #RainbowLaces is as important as ever, and why we all need to play our part to make football everyone’s game? @StonewallCymru | @stonewalluk#CityAsOne pic.twitter.com/KiXrrvbJZ9
Wearing Rainbow Laces – in person or online – is an important way of showing you support LGBT inclusion in sport. One million pairs of laces have gone out since the campaign started in 2013!
