Next Wednesday’s visit of Colchester United will see Bradford City AFC support Stonewall’s annual Rainbow Laces campaign - working to help ‘Make Sport Everyone’s Game’.
Taking place between Wednesday November 25 and Sunday December 12, the annual campaign supports inclusion in sport for everyone within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) communities.
And City’s visit of the U’s next week, which will be held on Rainbow Laces Day - Wednesday December 8 (7.45pm) - will represent the club’s annual fixture dedicated to the cause.
Ahead of the game, Bantams players will warm up in bespoke Rainbow Laces t-shirts which have been specially-produced for the fixture.
In addition to this, Councillor Richard Dunbar of the club’s LGBTQ+ Supporters Group will join club pitch announcer Darren Harper on the field at half-time, for a discussion on the importance of the campaign and the Bantams’ support of it.
The City captain will wear a rainbow captain’s armband on the day, with rainbow corner flags and fourth-official board stickers also in place at the Utilita Energy Stadium.
