As the World Cup gets underway this month, the sight of the sport’s most talented players showing off all their skills might inspire you to get down your local park and have a kick around yourself.
So if you’re looking for a new football, make sure you get one that you can score with Pride while also helping out some LGBTQ charities.
Joint London have launched a new specially-designed football that adorns the rainbow colours, bringing a symbol of hope and acceptance to the pitch.
While looking glorious, the profits from buying a Ball For All – which costs £20 plus postage and packaging – will go to a selection of LGBTQ charities, including Come Out 2 Play.
“Our team wanted to do something to show our love of football in a meaningful and memorable way, and our support for the LGBTQ+ community and LGBTQ+ footballers in particular,” said Damon Collins and Richard Exon, founders Joint London.
“We are fortunate enough to live in one of the world’s most progressive societies and Ball For All is a demonstration of the support Come Out 2 Play offers anyone who feels they cannot be whom they want to be.
“Ball For All is an initiative developed by our Joint Apprentices and we are very excited to support it.”
For more information about the Ball For All, and to buy one ready for the World Cup, you can visit their official website here.
The 2018 World Cup starts today (14 June) with the tournament this year taking place in Russia.
