The campaign is a way for everyone involved in football to show their support for LGBT equality and inclusivity.

Rachel Cossey, Football Development Officer for Norfolk FA said: “Our Rainbow Laces competition is a great way for clubs to support a fantastic campaign in promoting LGBT inclusion.

“It is delivering an important message that our LGBT community is welcome in Norfolk Football and will hopefully spark some friendly competition in the process.”

There are two categories in the competition, one for individuals and another for clubs.

Winners of the individual competition will receive two tickets to the Norwich City Rainbow Laces feature match, while the club competition will see the winning team receive five Nike match balls, five coaching clipboards and a £40 Discount Football Kits voucher.

The campaign itself will run across three weekends from 17 November - 2 December.
