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

On Saturday 25 July 2020 we aim to bring together LGBTIQ+ and ally football family, from around the world for an online day of queer football culture.

At a time when many are feeling isolated, not only from each other but also from their year-round passion, we aim to unite football in an online day of panel discussions, debates, entertainment and football fun.

We are excited to be working with a range of partners internationally to build a diverse and engaging programme for the day.

How It Will Work

We plan to have three virtual ‘stages’ on the day, as well as a family zone and a fringe programme. We will be allocating different sessions to these virtual spaces.

We aim to announce our programme at the beginning of July right here! This will include links to all activities/registration information etc. As with Pride programmes in real life, participants will be able to choose events and build their own menu of activities throughout the day.

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