NEWS | Glovers to support LGBT equality against Port Vale

Rainbow corner flags and captain's armband will be on show at Huish Park

26 November 2018

Town will proudly display rainbow coloured corner flags in support of Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign for Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two meeting with Port Vale.

The corner flags are part of a range of activities the EFL are undertaking as part of the campaign which runs from November 23rd to December 1st

EFL clubs, including Yeovil, have been provided with rainbow boot-laces, captain’s armbands and programme adverts, all of which are on display at Huish Park tonight.

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.
