Look for rainbow laces in the Premier League this weekend


Colorful cleats are nothing new in the Premier League, but expect something similar from the laces of many a player this weekend.

The PL is supporting the Rainbow Laces project, an endeavor undertaken by the group Stonewall to promote inclusivity in the world of football, with particular support to the LGBTQ community.

From the Premier League site:

All 10 Premier League fixtures on Saturday and Sunday will include Rainbow Laces perimeter board advertising, pre-match Rainbow Laces flags and a host of other activities to highlight the hard work undertaken by clubs and their supporter groups to welcome fans in their stadiums, regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.

PL executive chairman Richard Scudamore said, “Our support for the campaign is further recognition that the LGBT community is a vital and integral part of our community.”
