Victoria Park will meet Daylesford-Hepburn United in Ballarat District Soccer Association’s first “pride” match at Vic Park on Sunday.
United will be in rainbow attire and Vic Park wear rainbow socks to show their acceptance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual people.
The game has been organised in conjunction with Vic Park and Ballarat Frolic Festival, Ballarat's new regional queer arts and culture festival.
Vic Park head coach Michael Goodman said the message of social inclusion through football was vital. “We're proud to demonstrate that football is inclusive irrespective of your sexuality and gender.”
The division one men’s game kicks off at 3pm.
