Rainbow Laces

Play your part.

Though COVID-19 presents us with challenges, we are strongest when we come together. 

Following sport and taking part can give us community, energy and a sense of belonging. That's why Rainbow Laces is as important as ever, and why we all need to play our part to make sport everyone’s game.

This year, we'll be celebrating the impact that sport has on LGBT people, and the impact that LGBT people have on sport.

Rainbow Laces Day 2020 will be Wednesday 9 December.

We'll be sharing stories and considering how we can all play our part in making sport everyone's game.
