Wigan Warriors can confirm that their round eight game against Catalans Dragons on Sunday 22nd March will now be Pride Day, as the Warriors look to support the LGBTQ+ community.
The game against the Dragons will see the Club’s players wear Rainbow socks, provided by kit suppliers hummel, and the players will wear Rainbow Laces for the game with the Club also inviting LGBTQ+ groups, both locally and nationally, to be part of the day.
Wigan Warriors executive director, Kris Radlinski: “Here at Wigan Warriors we are committed to the core values of Inclusion and Respect. Our community foundation have a long history of supporting local LGBTQ+ groups and initiatives, and we want everyone who engages with our game to feel welcome, valued and most of all, respected. Rugby League has a strong history of inclusion, of breaking down barriers and of being an forward-thinking sport. I think that today more than any day that it is vitally important we reiterate that message. We’re looking forward to working with charities, local and hopefully national groups, to make this day a success.”
The Warriors will announce activities and promotions of the Pride Round clash against the Catalans Dragons in the upcoming weeks.
