AFC Telford United launch a one-off rainbow kit and rebranded crest to help tackle homophobia in football, which they plan to wear against Spennymoor Town.
They will show off their new resigned kit on the 16th of November, the day will also have family fun with the club auctioning the tops for charity following the match. Money will go to XYZ Youth Group, a charity which supports LGBT+ young people in Shropshire.
This collaborative event is supported by Football V Homophobia, Telford Mind, Shropshire Youth Association – XYZ Youth Group, Proud Baggies – West Bromwich Albion Football Clubs LGBT+ Supporters’ Group and Telford Samaritans.
Bucks Managing Director Ian Dosser said: “AFC Telford United fully supports Capgemini’s diversity and inclusion agenda and this collaboration allows the football club to further enhance our policies and behaviours, an opportunity the club have readily taken.
“We are proud to demonstrate our full support of Football v Homophobia initiatives and our dedication to kicking out all forms of homophobia in football.
“The club are committed to continuing to provide an inclusive environment for our staff, volunteers, football teams and everyone that attends our matches.”
