Rainbow Laces

Football is everyone's game

The FA and the County FA network are delighted to be a part of the 2019 Rainbow Laces Campaign. The campaign will take place from Friday 22 November to Sunday 8 December.

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.

Participation from your leagues, clubs and other organisations shows support in your local community. We have created a toolkit to help you and those involved over the campaign period to make the most of your involvement in the campaign, by promoting your fixture dates, conveying key messages and statistics and some suggestions for how you can showcase your commitment to LGBT+ inclusion.
