Stonewall Rainbow Laces Campaign
We’ll be showing our support for LGBT equality and inclusivity this November.
In addition to Rainbow Laces, The FA has announced it is to celebrate a significant new partnership with Stonewall, the UK’s leading charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality [LGBT], by hosting an historic fixture at Wembley Stadium connected by EE.
The FA has invited Stonewall FC, Britain’s most successful LGBT football club, to play a Middlesex County Football League Division One fixture at the home of football on Friday 30 November. The match will be the first time a regular season non-league fixture has been hosted at the stadium and has been scheduled to celebrate The FA becoming a Stonewall Diversity Champion and a new strategic partnership between the organisations.
Stonewall FC will take on Wilberforce Wanderers AFC in a top of the league clash, with the game set to take place during this year’s Rainbow Laces season – Stonewall’s campaign to help make sport everyone’s game. The game will kick-off at 7.45pm.
