U's Use Rainbow Ball on Tuesday

Oxford United and Northampton support EFL campaign

19 February 2024

Oxford United and Northampton Town will be supporting the EFL's Rainbow Ball campaign when the teams meet at the Kassam Stadium on Tuesday evening (7.45pm)

The PUMA ORBITA Rainbow Ball design includes the rainbow and progress colours, symbolising that football is for everyone and representing the League’s active support for inclusion throughout the game.

For every goal scored with the Rainbow Ball across the Championship, League One and League Two PUMA will make a donation to an LGBTQ+ Fans for Diversity Fund. The money raised will be utilised to support LGBTQ+ supporters and their projects which may include initiatives to raise awareness about inclusion in football, events promoting diversity, or providing resources for LGBTQ+ fans within the football community.  

EFL partners will also show their support for the campaign, with Title Partners Sky Bet donating an allocation of PUMA ORBITA Rainbow Balls to LGBTQ+ friendly community football clubs and fans, while EA SPORTS FC 24™ players will be able to use the Rainbow Ball in gameplay from February 15.
