News from Outsports: Cricket is the latest sport to embrace Rainbow Laces campaign

“Two major cricket leagues in England and Wales will be demonstrating support for the Rainbow Laces campaign this weekend. Men and women — in the NatWest T20 Blast and the Kia Super League, respectively — will be wearing rainbow-colored shoelaces, among other displays of inclusion. Rainbow Laces is a campaign that encourages athletes to wear rainbow-colored laces in their cleats and sneakers during matches to show support for the LGBT community.”

“The promotion is being pushed by the England and Wales Cricket Board, which lists five ways the Rainbow Laces campaign, and the rainbow in general, will be incorporated into matches.”
