Real Salt Lake hopes to keep the wins going with 3-straight(ish) at home matches during Pride month
Tonight’s match, at 7:30 p.m., is Real Salt Lake’s first-ever Pride Night, and a portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go to support scholarships for LGBTQ students at the University of Utah. Tickets $17–125, use Promo Code: Pride for 20 percent discount.
It’s also an important subject for head coach Mike Petke, who spoke on the RSL Coaches’ Show on the KSL TV app about equality and his passion to bring justice to all people, regardless of their sexual orientation.
“It’s important in life. It’s important in society,” said Petke, who alluded to a cousin in his family who has stirred strong emotions about LGBTQ rights. “It doesn’t make sense to me that you treat someone differently because of their preference.
“As long as it isn’t affecting you or doing damage — which I don’t think this is — I know everybody has a right to be happy and to enjoy the freedoms that everyone else has.”
The second-division Real Monarchs will host Pride Night, June 26 against Fresno FC, while the Utah Royals will finish off the celebration on June 27 against Seattle.
