KEIGHLEY Cougars will unveil a terracing area at their home ground for members of the LGBT+ community at their match this weekend.

The club will hold their fourth annual Pride game against Whitehaven at Cougar Park on Sunday, June 25 (3pm kick-off) in the Betfred Championship.

In a groundbreaking move, Cougars will proudly unveil the 'Pride Terrace' during the event.


This scheme is the first and only sports club in the UK to dedicate a terracing area of the stadium to the LGBTQ+ community. The Pride Terrace, adorned with the vibrant rainbow colours, symbolizes the club’s support not just for one day, but throughout the entire year and for generations to come.

Sports Minister, Stuart Andrew MP, along with Keighley MP Robbie Moore, will be present to officially inaugurate the Pride Terrace at Sunday’s match.

The event will kick off with a curtain raiser featuring the talented young players from local amateur club Keighley Albions. Their presence, along with hundreds of enthusiastic kids, promises to create an electrifying atmosphere that sets the stage for an incredible main event.

Adding to the vibrant celebration, renowned drag artists will take the stage to deliver awe-inspiring performances, captivating the audience with their talent and charisma.
