AFC Bournemouth will once again be backing the Rainbow Laces campaign this weekend.

Last season the Cherries backed the campaign in the Premier League away fixture with Arsenal.

This season the campaign which runs between 24th November and 3rd December, falls on AFC Bournemouth being away at Swansea City.

AFC Bournemouth captain Simon Francis is set to wear a special rainbow armband to show support for LGBT inclusion in sport.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told Sky Sports

‘We are a club that is setting an example and setting a new path, and I think the supporters have backed that superbly.

‘We’re trying to change mind-sets of people in football and trying to break new barriers and we want to do our bit.

‘I think this is a really important campaign throughout football, not just for us. We are a club very much for everybody and we believe in inclusion for everybody.

‘I think it’s vitally important that we show that support through our captain. It’s not about individuals, it’s about the team trying to promote this cause.’
