Lace Up and Speak Up: Driving change

The FA and the County FA network are delighted to be a part of the 2021 Rainbow Laces campaign.

The campaign will take place from Thursday 25 November to Sunday 12 December. Wednesday 8 December will be this year’s landmark ‘wear your rainbow laces day’, when teams, leagues, businesses, schools and leading sports personalities all over the word will be getting together to wear their laces with pride.

All are encouraged to wear them to work, take and post pictures to social media, and visibly show their support for LGBTQ+ people in football.

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. As we lace up this year, the call to action will be to have a conversation about why you are wearing Rainbow Laces.

These conversations can be with friends and family, in a club or with team mates. Our activation pack covers some great conversation starters, alongside ideas on how to plan and execute your campaign or show your support for the campaign.
