Football v Homophobia matchday details


Charlton and its Community Trust will host the club's annual Football v Homophobia games this weekend.

The matches are being put on in partnership with the Proud Valiants, the club’s LGBTQI+ supporters’ group, Charlton Invicta, the club’s affiliated LGBTQ+ inclusive team, and club partner the University of Greenwich.

Charlton's annual Football v Homophobia matchday, which sees the club and its partners stand together to promote equality, first took place in 2017.

This year’s themed matchdays will take place around the men’s first-team fixture against Derby County at The Valley on Saturday and women’s first-team game against Lewes at The Oakwood on Sunday.

Activity includes:

  • Players warming up in Football v Homophobia shirts
  • Football v Homophobia-related content across the club’s matchday channels, with rainbow corner flags
  • The Pink Singers, a London-based LGBT+ community choir, to perform ahead of kick-off of the men’s first-team game
  • Pre and post-match activity with the Proud Valiants, Charlton Invicta and the University of Greenwich
  • Opportunity to win rainbow laces
