Stanley support Rainbow Laces campaign

The Reds show their support for LGBT+ inclusion in the EFL

9 December 2019

Accrington Stanley are proud to be supporting the EFL and Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign.

During tomorrow night's Trophy fixture with Bolton Wanderers, the substitution board and corner flags at the Wham Stadium will be turned rainbow coloured in support of LGBT+ inclusion in the EFL.

Over the last three years, the support of football fans has helped generate a huge amount of awareness around LGBT people in sport.

During November 2018, 12 million people in Great Britain saw the campaign including 34 per cent of all sport fans.

More importantly, Rainbow Laces has helped foster positive attitudes towards LGBT people in sport and persuaded allies to play their part.
