Rayo Vallecano release inspiring new kits

A real Rayo sunshine...

Kevin Beirne

Spanish side Real Vallecano have released their new kits for the 2015/16 season celebrating
“the unsung heroes”.

The Madrid club’s away strip includes a rainbow dash across the front in a clear sign of support for the LGBT community. Their third jersey features a pink stripe across it to raise awareness for the fight against cancer.

But it doesn’t stop there.

The club say that the rainbow dash actually stands for more than just their support of LGBT rights, with each colour of the rainbow representing its own individual cause.

The red honours cancer sufferers and their families, orange is to support people with disabilities, yellow is to inspire those who never lose hope, green shows support for the environment, blue is for those in the fight against child abuse and purple encourages those who work to prevent violence against women.

A great example of how a team can support its fans.
