🌈 Panthers attending Rainbow Laces game

Bristol City is proud to show its support for LGBTQ+ inclusivity this weekend in their game against Derby County.

The fixture will be the club’s annual Rainbow Laces game and the focus of this year’s campaign is ensuring that all sporting events are a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment as clubs across the EFL collectively work to Make Sport Everyone’s Game.

Rainbow corner flags and substitution boards will be used by clubs at their selected fixture to highlight their continued support for LGBTQ+ fans, players and staff across the game. Rainbow laces have also been provided.

The Robins Foundation has also invited to the game the Bristol City Panthers - an LGBTQ+ friendly team associated with the club through the ‘We Are City’ project. 

The Panthers are one of only two LGBTQ+ clubs in the country to have a formal affiliation with an English Football League side. The team play in Division 2 of the GFSN (Gay Football Supporters Network) League. 

🎥: Check out what happened when City legend Scott Murray and the Robins foundation staff joined the Bristol City Panthers at their training session. 🌈 ⚽️

 

 

If you are looking for a fun and friendly environment to enjoy football and make new friends in the Bristol LGBTQ+ community, check them out. They train every Thursday evening from 8:45pm at South Bristol Sports Centre (BS14 9EA). If you'd like to come along just get in touch for details (and your first session is free!).
