This month, Republic FC is teaming up with several local and national partners to celebrate Pride Month and recognize the impact of LGBTQ+ individuals, as well as shine a light on the organizations that are working tirelessly to support the LGBTQ+ community.
PRIDE COLLECTION – AVAILABLE NOW
The line was designed by Nat Strimpopulos, a transgender artist and soccer lover who currently serves as the Creative Director for The Trevor Project. At the center of the collection is a scarf featuring messages of love and kindness, as well as some nods to Republic FC’s identity – including the Resilient Red hue and 10 stripes to represent the club’s 10th season celebration. The Pride Collection also includes a t-shirt and decal.
20% proceeds from the Pride Collection will benefit The Trevor Project, the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to LGBTQ youth.
GOALS FOR PRIDE
Republic FC has also launched a Goals for Pride campaign and will donate $100 for every goal scored by the Indomitable Club in its four matches in June. The campaign will support two organizations that the club has previously teamed up with for LGBTQ-focused initiatives: Athlete Ally and the Sacramento LGBT Community Center. Fans can make their pledge today at PledgeIt.org/goals-for-pride.
PRIDE NIGHT — JUNE 24, 2023 AT 8 PM #SACvSA
To close out the month, Republic FC will host its annual Pride Match, highlighting community champions and advocates from the region’s LGBTQ+ community when the club hosts San Antonio FC at Heart Health Park on Saturday, June 24. In addition to special elements symbolic of Pride month – including rainbow nets and corner flags on the pitch – the club will once again team up with the LGBT Center to present a $1,000 scholarship to a local student.
You can purchase a special package for the match, that includes a ticket to the game and our Pride scarf. Purchase scarf & ticket package>>
