Rainbow Laces 2020 – when Foxes Pride went viral!

One of our tweets had 5.5 million views in December 2020!

Foxes Pride was saddened by LGBT-phobic comments online following the Sheffield United v LCFC fixture on the 6th December 2020 during the Rainbow Laces campaign.

Jamie Vardy scored in the 90th minute to win the game against the rivals of his beloved Sheffield Wednesday.

His familiar corner flag celebration was misused by some on social media to spread hateful LGBT-phobic comments.

LCFC and Vardy instead sent this message to Foxes Pride showing their continued support of us, something they have done for many years now!
