The English Premier League is now officially supporting and promoting gay/LGBT community as match officials and playees alike donned rainbow laces.
In most of match day games, the captains’ armbands were in rainbow colours as part of the Rainbow Laces takeover and their support for gays.
Perimeter advertising at every Premier League match included messages supporting the campaign and every game was opened with a giant Premier League Rainbow Laces flag.
Manchester City’s Fernandinho, Chelsea’s Gary Cahill, Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris and Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson were among players to don rainbow-coloured captain’s armbands.

Some Premier League clubs also changed background of their social media accounts to rainbow colours.
Watford captain Troy Deeney and Stoke counterpart Jon Walters posed with their special captain’s armbands ahead of the Nissan Super Sunday clash at Vicarage Road.
