City will host their annual Stonewall Rainbow Laces fixture next week, when Swindon Town visit the University of Bradford Stadium.

Mark Hughes' men will host the Robins on Tuesday October 25, with action set to get underway from 7.45pm in West Yorkshire.

And the fixture, held one day before Rainbow Laces Day on Wednesday October 26, will be the Bantams' annual fixture dedicated to the cause, working to help ‘Make Sport Everyone’s Game’. 

Taking place between Wednesday October 19 and Monday October 31, the annual campaign supports inclusion in sport for everyone within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning and ace (LGBTQ+) communities. 

On the day, City players will warm up in bespoke Rainbow Laces t-shirts which have been specially-produced for the fixture, with representatives from local LGBTQ+ groups from across the district invited to the game. 

The matchday playlist will contain music created by artists within the LGBTQ+ community, while bucket collections around the outside of Valley Parade will collect donations for Equity Partnership and Bradford Pride. 

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.
