Derbyshire County Cricket Club joins the ECB and the wider game will mark Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces campaign. 

The campaign – now in its 10th year – is designed to promote LGBTQ+ inclusion in sport. Cricket will be participating for the seventh season in a row.

Players will be given laces, stumps will be branded and there will be big-screen graphics across all Vitality Blast and Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy fixtures this weekend, England Women v Australia Women at The Kia Oval on July 5 and day one of England Men v Australia Men at Headingley on July 6.

England Men’s player Joe Root said: “As players we have a platform to use and as a group we believe that cricket should be a game that everyone can play, watch and enjoy. We’re really proud to support LGBTQ+ inclusion in cricket, and we know that supporting a campaign like this can help LGBTQ+ individuals feel supported in the game.”
