Lincolnshire FA are inviting grassroots clubs to join in supporting the annual Rainbow Laces campaign and show their support for LGBTQ+ inclusion.
Now in its 10th year, the Rainbow Laces campaign has seen over a million people lace up in support, but there is still work to be done, so let's Lace Up to Keep It Up and make football everyone's game.
The campaign is due to run between 25th November and 10th December, and we are urging clubs in Lincolnshire to show their support for the LGBTQ+ community by designating a matchday to the campaign and starting conversations about areas your club can improve.
Those interested in getting involved with the campaign are recommended to:
- Identify areas to improve LGBTQ+ inclusion at your football club as annual actions and share these on your website or social media platforms
- Sign up to one of Lincolnshire FA's LGBTQ+ Workshops
- Designate a match day to the Rainbow Laces campaign
- Share the matchday event/participation across social media platforms, tagging Lincolnshire FA
We are now inviting clubs to apply for an allocation of Rainbow Laces. Clubs can claim up to 25 pairs and will need to be picked up from the Lincolnshire FA Office at Deepdale Enterprise Park, Deepdale Lane, Nettleham, Lincoln, LN2 2LL. In some cases, we may be able to post laces out to you.
