This document has been written to help improve the League, providing a clear blueprint for accepted rules and expected conduct for both players and clubs. The document does not cover every eventuality and as the London Unity League continues to develop, so will this document via feedback and suggestions by clubs partaking in its running.

From 7th July 2018, the date of London Pride 2018, the London Unity League will start using a new logo (pictured). The new identity replaces the original logo, which has served the league well since its formation in 2006.

The rainbow-themed image was chosen through an open competition. The winner was Stonewall FC player, Daniel Boundy.

Daniel told LUL News, “I saw that the LUL were looking to refresh their logo and thought it was something that I could help with. For the logo, I aimed for clean look that could be more easily applied whilst moving towards a more professional look.

“The rainbow colours are representative of our wider community – the semi circle representing a football which acts as an umbrella over the name of the league. The LUL provides an encouraging and safe space to play sport and I’m pleased that I have been able to give back to something that provides so much for others.”

Launching the new logo, LUL Chair, Brian Silk, said: “We wanted to update our identity as part of continuing to develop the league. We are proud of our role in LGBT+-friendly football in our capital city and we are very proud of our new logo. London Pride 2018 is the perfect time to bring in our new emblem.

“The LUL is about to enter an exciting period of our existence. Our at recent annual meeting, a range of positive ideas and developments were discussed that will mean that we will increasingly reach outwards as a way of becoming even more inclusive.

“We are already a ‘league of choice’ for any LGBT+ footballers and friends who want to play LGBT+-friendly football in the London area. We want to build on our achievements to help make football a game for all.

“Look out for further news, over the coming weeks and months, on some of the things we will be doing during the next 12 months.”
