LARNE Football Club are delighted to announce that we will be supporting Larne Pride Festival 2019 on Saturday 17th August.
The event, hosted at Olderfleet Bar Larne, will be the first ever Pride Festival held in the East-Antrim area. As the day coincides with our important league game versus Ballymena United at Inver Park, our players will be wearing rainbow laces during the game, as a show of support to all races, religions and sexuality.
Local equality ambassador Chris McNaughten had the following to say, “it’s brilliant to have the support of Larne FC and it truly means so much for our community. The club, which is such a strong pillar within our town, is supporting and accepting everyone which sets a great example for others.”
Chairman, Gareth Clements also commented, “with the football club becoming a primary focal point of progress and all that is good in Larne, we believe it is important to show support for this event to celebrate diversity and inclusion within our town. It is important that we promote equality and inclusiveness in football as a valued part of our sporting fabric. We hope that the Pride Festival is a success and fully reflects the ‘no judgment or discrimination’ message the organisers are promoting.”
Everyone at Larne Football Club would like to wish Chris and his team good luck with their upcoming event and would urge the town to support them where possible.
