Wasps' players to don rainbow laces

A number of London Wasps players will this weekend support a campaign addressing homophobia, by wearing rainbow laces in their boots.

The Stonewall backed initiative has been supported already by a raft of professional footballers across the country, and this weekend Wasps, who were the first professional rugby Club to sign a Government Charter to challenge homophobic discrimination in 2011, will do their bit when they take on Worcester Warriors in the Aviva Premiership at Adams Park.

Jan Gooding, Aviva Group Brand Director added: “We’re delighted that London Wasps’ players are joining this great initiative by sporting their rainbow laces for their game against Worcester Warriors. Aviva is an equal opportunities organisation and a supporter of Stonewall in championing diversity as we believe people perform better when they can be themselves.”

Campaign partners Paddy Power and Stonewall are asking fans and the public to back the campaign by taking to social media and using the hashtag #RBGF.

London Wasps take on Worcester Warriors on Saturday at 3pm at Adams Park. To secure your place book online at wasps.co.uk/tickets.
