Manchester United announced a partnership with LGBT charity Stonewall. In a statement released on Tuesday, Manchester United said the initiative would see them work alongside the charity to help tackle LGBT issues in sport and society, including looking at ways in which inclusion and equality can be improved.
Through the partnership—which makes them U.K.'s first football club to partner with Stonewall—Manchester United officially joined the TeamPride coalition of global businesses offering to support people who are involved in sports on issues around homophobia and discrimination.
Manchester United initially teamed up with Stonewall last year, attending the annual TeamPride conference, before taking part in the charity's Rainbow Laces campaign. Old Trafford will host the Rainbow Laces Summit later this year.
