EFL Clubs across the country will unite in their support of LGBT inclusivity by turning their substitution boards and corner flags rainbow coloured to raise awareness of Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign.
The Iron's game at home to Port Vale today will highlight the campaign.
The EFL will change its logo to a bespoke rainbow coloured version for the campaign and has also created a series of short films to help share the stories of LGBT fans in the game.
Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign is in support of LGBT equality with a key theme for this year focused on creating more allies to LGBT people in sport.
The EFL’s support for Rainbow Laces forms part of its wider LGBT work delivered in conjunction with clubs through the Equality Code of Practice. This includes delivering activities, setting policies, and advising on recruitment and education at clubs.
