As part of the EFL’s ‘Not Today or Any Day’ anti-discrimination campaign, Brentford FC and other clubs across the country will unite in their support of LGBT inclusivity to raise awareness of Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign. The focus of this year’s campaign is ensuring a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for all whether we’re together, apart, online or on the pitch. This is part of a drive to collectively work to Make Sport Everyone’s Game, which fits with the Brentford FC Bee Together ethos.
In support of the campaign, specific matchday activity will take place at all EFL clubs between Friday 4 December and Sunday 13 December. Our special Rainbow Laces match will be next Saturday, 5 December. As we welcome fans back for the first time, we will gave Blackburn Rovers and also take part in the Rainbow Laces campaign.
Rainbow corner flags and substitution boards will be used at the fixture to highlight their continued support for LGBT fans, players and staff across the game. We will also highlight the important work done to continue to provide an inclusive and welcoming environment for all. The EFL’s support for Rainbow Laces forms part of its wider LGBT work and anti-discrimination campaign, ‘Not Today or Any Day’ which continues to raise awareness of the issue and the zero-tolerance approach to discrimination and prejudiced behaviour by the League and its clubs.
