Bristol City, Bristol Rugby and Bristol Flyers players wore the laces during last weekend’s fixtures against Reading, Leicester Tigers, Leicester Riders and Newcastle Eagles respectively. 

Thousands of pairs of the laces were handed out around the concourses at Ashton Gate before Bristol Rugby’s Aviva Premiership clash with Leicester Tigers on Friday.

Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign ran from November 25th-27th and is designed to show that sport is everyone’s game and to ensure LGBT people feel welcome and included.
