Football is for Everyone

As a youngster, Michelle played football with the boys in the street and at school, whilst at the time very uncommon, she was always accepted by the lads. 

Today Michelle Co Chairs the Rainbow Reds. Rainbow Reds are Middlesbrough Football Club’s official LGBTQ+ supporters group. Founded in 2019, the group promotes inclusivity across the MFC family and aims to work alongside other supporter groups. Rainbow Reds is not only for supporters who identify themselves as LGBT+, every fan is welcome.

Michelle is a super fan, not because she holds a season ticket, not because she is extremely passionate about Boro and not because she never misses a game. Michelle is a super fan because she helps people feel that they belong. Welcome to to the Pukka Athletic Team Michelle.
