HUST are pleased to announce that as part of this years Rainbow Laces campaign we have arranged a football match against Darlington Football Club Supporters Group. The game will take place at Stockton Town FC on Sunday 12th December 2021 at 3:00pm. We have reached out to HUST members to put a squad of players together and hope to see plenty of spectators attend the event which is free entry. Both teams will be wearing rainbow laces.

Although it is a widely recognised national campaign, at HUST we feel it is important to ensure that such campaigns also support and promote those in the local community. With that in mind we have once again teamed up with HartGables who will be attending the event to allow the opportunity to help supporters understand the great work they do for the local LGBT+ community.  

The aim of the event is to promote Rainbow Laces and HartGables at a local level, with two traditional rivals on the pitch coming together to promote and celebrate sport and diversity in our local communities and to help demonstrate that football is for everyone. Please also keep you eyes out on our website and social media for further events and promotions supporting the wider campaign.  

If you are a HUST member then you also have an opportunity to win a unique prize! Last season we provided Pools with their Rainbow Captain’s Armband, with Nicky Featherstone and Ryan Donaldson both signing this for us following the match. All HUST members will be entered into a draw to win this unique prize following our monthly lotto draw this month. If you are a fully signed up HUST member on 26th November, then you will be in this draw, which will be live on Facebook.   

Stockton Town is a great, modern venue with covered spectator areas and the bar will also be open. It is easily accessible with plenty of parking. The address is:

Bishopton Road West,  Stockton-on-Tees, TS19 0QD. We hope to see you there!
