Arsenal Players Aim to Change the Game with Rainbow Laces
I'm a little late with this news, but I just stumbled across this commercial and wanted to share it!
Rainbow Laces is a massive campaign to kick homophobia out of football. In 2014 (when this campaign first aired) players from over 70 professional football clubs including Arsenal and Man City laced up to show their support for gay players.
The campaign successfully reached more players, clubs and fans than ever. There were over 100,000 requests for laces during one week in September.

I remember this around the time of the winter holidays/run-in. Was a great cause. Would love to see more clubs do it for sure.

@GermanBumbleBee I think this was released around September. I actually saw a gif set of this and had to search for the video. Really cool move from the football world :)

@kristenadams I expect it to be a yearly thing.
