Oxford United have the club's first official LGBTQ+ supporters group.

The club said: "As a club, we recognise the importance of inclusivity and the key role we can play in supporting the LGBTQ+ community.

"We want everyone to feel welcome to attend our matches, regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual identification."

Beyond advocating for positive transformation within football, Proud Yellows will also provide a social environment for the community.

Tim Williams, Oxford United’s CEO, said: "We want this club to offer an inclusive environment so that everyone feels welcome, and will work closely with Proud Yellows to ensure the experience we deliver matches that ambition."

Proud Yellows isn't exclusive to LGBTQ+ supporters, it is open to all, as it aims to form a community.

The group was originally set up U’s fan Sammy last year, who said he did so "not only for visibility but to build community, for fans to feel they have a voice in a safe and inclusive space".

He added that the group is "just as much about community" as it is about campaigning.

He said: "The club and supporters’ panel have been absolutely fantastic with their support and guidance."
