Pride Park Pride
Join our inclusive football programme
We take pride in all the communities we reach out to, and that's no different to the LGBTQ+ community.
Everyone should be able to play football; regardless of sexual orientation, gender or ability. Unfortunately, homophobia still exists in the game, leaving some feeling they can't participate or be part of a club.
Pride Park Pride aims to bring the local LGBTQ+ community together; providing a safe space to socialise, chat and enjoy football in the heart of the club and in our own home.
Our first ever football session for this programme will take place 12th February 2024. We're very pleased that this will take place at the home of Derby County training - Moor Farm!
Sessions will see us play small-sided football matches between participants, which will be free of charge. Further details on dates, locations and times will be disclosed in the future.

For safeguarding purposes, these sessions are currently only on offer for 18+.
''We aim to develop a team from this new programme, but if we can help just one person feel comfortable in the game, then we will be even more proud of this new and exciting opportunity.''
Josh Wing | Pride Park Pride founder, Derby County Community Trust
