Non-league Altrincham's kit flies LGBT rainbow flag

Altrincham players wear their multicoloured Football Vs. Homophobia kit before their match against Bradford Park Avenue.

Non-League team Altrincham FC made history in their 1-1 home draw with Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday when they wore a kit in the rainbow colours of the LGBT flag.

Altrincham, who usually play in red and white stripes, wore the kit to highlight the fight against homophobia in football.

The one-off kit, used during what is Football vs. Homophobia Action Month, will be auctioned to raise funds for a centre supporting lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans youngsters in the club's Greater Manchester neighbourhood.

Altrincham, who play in the National League North, announced the kit, which carries the logo of the Football vs. Homophobia campaign, in a tweet at the end of last month that read: "Not all stripes are straight..."

"We believe it will be the first time anywhere in the world that a senior football club has worn a kit solely modelled on the LGBT Pride Flag," director Bill Waterson told the club's website.

"Altrincham will, therefore, be creating a small moment of football history.

"To us, it is a big statement. Altrincham Football Club are committed to creating a welcoming environment for all who attend our games, and our support for Football vs. Homophobia is part of this commitment."
