- LCFC and Foxes Pride in contention for Football v Homophobia awards
- The Club and its LGBTQ+ fan group nominated in the Professional Game and Supporters Group categories
- Winners to be announced on Friday 25 February
Alongside Tottenham Hotspur and Sheffield United, LCFC are in contention for the Professional Game award, which recognises professional football clubs who have shown dedication to improving the landscape of football for LGBTQ+ people and who have worked to create better inclusion and participation.
Foxes Pride, meanwhile, have been nominated for the Supporters Group award for their continued work to make professional football inclusive of LGBTQ+ fans, while giving a voice and making positive change to the experience of LGBTQ+ supporters.
Earlier this season, as part of the Rainbow Laces campaign, members of Foxes Pride were invited to LCFC Training Ground to meet Brendan Rodgers and some of the Club’s first team players to discuss LGBTQ+ inclusion and the importance of allyship and standing up in support of the LGBTQ+ community.
The visit to Seagrave also gave the group the chance to present Jamie Vardy with the rainbow corner flag which he signed for Foxes Pride after it broke following his celebration in a 2-1 win over Sheffield United in December 2020.
Graeme Smith, Chair of Foxes Pride, said: “We are proud of the work we do with Leicester City, and while we know that working to achieve equality for all is not about getting rewards, this nomination is a deserved recognition of the work LCFC do.
“The work carried out is embedded at all levels across the Football Club, and we look forward to continuing our relationship together.”
The Football v Homophobia awards are held annually to recognise the work on LGBTQ+ inclusion across the game.
The winners will be announced on Friday 25 February. Please click HERE for more information about Foxes Pride.
