Somerset is proud to once again support the Rainbow Laces campaign and we want all of our grassroots clubs and participants to join us.
The campaign begins on Thursday 25 November and will run through until Sunday 12 December, with Wednesday 8 December designated as this year’s landmark ‘wear your rainbow laces day’,
This is when teams, leagues, businesses, schools and leading sports personalities all over the word will be getting together to wear their laces with pride.
All are encouraged to wear them to work, take and post pictures to social media, and visibly show their support for LGBTQ+ people in football.
We hope you’ll show your support by engaging with the campaign throughout this period so that together, we can make football everyone’s game. As we lace up this year, the call to action will be to have a conversation about why you are wearing Rainbow Laces.
These conversations can be with friends and family, in a club or with team mates. The activation pack covers some great conversation starters, alongside ideas on how to plan and execute your campaign or show your support for the campaign.
The Rainbow Laces campaign kicks-off on Thursday 25 November.
