In comparison with other students group there is very limited data and insight on the activity levels of the LGBTQ+ community and the barriers and motivations to participate. In 2022 AoC Sport will be developing research and insight to support colleges to improve their offer for LGBTQ+ students.

Rainbow Laces

AoC Sport are proud to support the Stonewall UK Rainbow Laces campaign. We are asking colleges to Lace Up and Speak Up to help drive meaningful change and make a commitment to making football more welcoming for LGBTQ+ people. For more information please click here.

Football v Homophobia

Football v Homophobia exists to challenge discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and expression at all levels in football.

Colleges can sign up to the campaign here.
