Swansea City to show support for Rainbow Laces campaign against Luton

5th December 2020
Rainbow Laces

Swansea City will show its support for Stonewalls Rainbow Laces Campaign during this afternoon’s fixture with Luton Town at the Liberty Stadium.

The club has been a proud supporter of the LGBT community, and the fantastic work Stonewall does, for many years.

This afternoon’s fixture has been designated as the fixture in which we highlight our ongoing support for LGBT fans, players and staff across the game, with Swans captain Matt Grimes wearing a rainbow coloured-armband. We will also be using rainbow coloured substitution boards and corner flags.

We have, and will continue to celebrate and raise awareness of the LGBT community throughout the course of the Rainbow Laces Campaign (November  26 to December 13) at the club, with different activities taking place both internally and externally.

You may have already seen our customer-facing staff supporting the campaign by wearing rainbow lanyards and we have also provided LGBT Awareness Sessions to all employees at the club, with particular focus on how sport helps LGBT people.

Don’t forget that Rainbow Laces Day will be on December 9, you can catch up on everything the club has been doing on our social channels.

This year has been like no other and it’s now more important than ever that we raise awareness and support the LGBT community.

Together or apart, online or on the pitch, we need to build on our work to make sport everyone’s game.
