Albion continue Stonewall support

30 November 2018

ALBION will again show their support for the LGBT+ community through a series of initiatives focusing around the Brentford fixture on Monday, December 3.

On a night which sees Proud Baggies nominated for the "Fans for Diversity" Award in London, the Club will host its designated Stonewall - the LGBT equality charity - fixture at The Hawthorns.

Our stadium is welcome to all and the campaign will continue to raise awareness of LGBT equality with a key theme for this year focused on creating more allies to LGBT people in sport.

To that end, Albion stars will complete their pre-match warm-up in Proud Baggies t-shirts before a rainbow flag greets players as they emerge from the tunnel.

Our captain for the live televised Brentford game will don the Stonewall armband with players' laces emblazoned with the rainbow colours at their discretion.

Keep your eyes on our social media channels in the lead-up to the game for a series of messages from first-team players, as well as a short film with Proud Baggies co-founder Neil Basterfield as he discusses the Club's role in promoting equality.

Shaun Harvey, EFL Chief Executive said: "We are hoping our specific Rainbow Laces initiatives this year, which includes new rainbow substitution boards as well as converting all corner flags at EFL grounds into rainbow colours, will again grab the attention of football fans up and down the country."
