Dons fans, players, and staff displayed a show of unity on Saturday for the Rainbow Laces campaign with a clear message that discrimination will not be tolerated.
The gallery of pictures and video below highlighted the importance of being an ally with visibility showing our support for the LGBTQA+ community, and promoting a truly inclusive environment as we aim to stamp out unacceptable behaviour.
Thanks to a raffle, over £500 was raised, which will be split between Stonewall and the AFC Wimbledon Foundation. However, the winning ticket, drawn by Man of the Match Ayoub Assal, still hasn’t been claimed!
If you have yellow ticket 125, please e-mail our Diversity & Inclusion Working Group Chair Jane Lonsdale. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org . The winning prize of a Puma Rainbow shirt, signed by the players, will be sent out to you.
The Dons 4 Diversity and D&I Working Group would like to thank fans for their support of Saturday’s ‘Lace Up Speak Up’ event with special thanks to Bark Group, the AFC Wimbledon Medical team, and individual fans, for their sponsorship of the event.
There’s a simple way for you to help stamp out abuse at our games. Report any incidents of discrimination by contacting 07881 468833 on matchdays.
It is always best to report incidents as quickly as possible. On a matchday if you see or hear any abuse, please call or text the matchday number, including as much information as possible, so immediate action can be taken by stewards and the control room. On non matchdays you can e-mail email@example.com .
