Football players – your club needs you!

As part of the Rainbow Laces campaign, West Ham are hosting an LGBT Supporters match featuring Pride Of Irons vs. Gay Gooners, the Arsenal LGBT supporters group.

If you’d like to take part, please email

The club will have their video team there to record footage and Sky Sports will also be invited to join.

This is a mixed gender game and players of all ability are welcome. It’s sure to be a great event and of course we’ll likely head out and hit the town after so even if you don’t want to play, you’re welcome to join.

The game will take place near the London Stadium on Friday 6th December, kick off 7pm.

Christmas Party


The price includes a glass of bubbly on arrival, followed by a buffet (including vegetarian and vegan options). We’ve chosen a cracking venue this year, near the London Stadium, with a lovely atmosphere. They even have a piano! Which means that some of us are already very excited at the prospect of the talented George tinkling the ivories at some point, ably accompanied by our rockstar co-chair Jo!

As always, newcomers are welcome. If you haven’t met up with us before, this is a great opportunity to come along and meet your fellow members. Drop us an email in advance and let us know if you’re coming along for the first time and we’ll make sure to welcome you with big open hammerhead arms.
