WE'LL BRING OUR LGBTQ+ FOOTBALL

FAMILY TOGETHER AGAIN IN JUNE 2024

Football Pride 2024 is coming to London on Friday 28 June - be a part of it!

Building on the success of last year’s event in Manchester, Football v Homophobia is organising the event which will be hosted by Chelsea Foundation at Stamford Bridge, on the day before the annual Pride in London parade.

A busy programme of LGBTQ football culture, activities and conversations will be on offer along with networking and social opportunities. Lunch is provided too.

Football Pride will again provide visibility, celebration and a powerful sense of community for LGBTQ+ people and allies from across all parts of the game.

The event also represents a chance for football organisations, sponsors and stakeholders to meaningfully show their support for our communities.

The programme will showcase the work of inclusive football clubs in and around the capital, and help to attract more people who are passionate about creating a game for everyone.

Football Pride is an event that helps to unite the wider family of FvH, Pride in Football, GFSN, clubs and groups for women and non-binary people, Sports Media LGBT+, the LGBTQ+ Professionals in Football Collective and others.

The first Football Pride event was held as an online festival in July 2020.

The Football Pride Festival is an initiative of the Football v Homophobia Campaign.

The event brings together our LGBTIQ+ and allies football family, for a day of queer football culture.

The original event in 2020 was virtual, held at a time when many were feeling isolated, not only from each other but also from their year-round passion. To combat this, FvH put on an online day of panel discussions, debates, entertainment and football fun.

We were excited to work with a range of partners internationally to build a diverse and engaging programme for the day.

How It Worked

We had four virtual ‘stages’ on the day, as well as a family zone and a fringe programme. We allocated different sessions to these virtual spaces.

As with Pride programmes in real life, participants were able to choose events and build their own menu of activities throughout the day.

Activities were delivered via a range of online platforms and included, for example, Zoom, Instagram TV, Facebook Live, Twitter, Twitch etc.
