Swansea and Bournemouth have announced they will be the first Premier League clubs to offer transgender and non-binary supporters a gender-neutral title prefix.
The two teams meet at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, which has been designated as an LGBT fixture.
Both clubs confirmed in a joint statement that supporters would be offered the option of using the 'Mx' title, "should they not wish to be identified by traditional gender categories".
The 'Mx' title, which is pronounced 'Mix' or 'Mux', is "available for all transgender and intersex people, as well as people who don't identify with one particular gender or don't want to be identified as being male or female".
New and existing customers will be able to opt for their preference across all major points of service at the clubs, including ticketing and merchandise purchases as well as online accounts.
Swansea's equality and diversity manager Lucy Norman said: "As a club, we're continually looking at ways to make our services more inclusive. Language plays a really important part in delivering this and ensuring that everyone feels welcome - regardless of age, gender or gender identity, sexuality or ethnicity."
Bournemouth's general manager Liz Finney added: "The club strives to make all individuals and groups feel welcomed, comfortable and safe. We are pleased to have been able to work with Swansea on realising this goal and making football a more inclusive environment to be enjoyed by everyone."

Everton have taken another significant next step towards leaving Goodison Park by signing a lease for land at Bramley-Moore Dock, the site of their proposed new stadium.
The 200-year lease, which is conditional upon gaining planning consent for the ground and securing funding for its construction, has a so-called 'peppercorn rent' and means the club effectively now controls the land upon which they hope to build.
"Clearly this is very positive news," said Toffees chief executive Robert Elstone after the deal was signed between Everton Stadium Development Limited (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Everton Football Club) and Peel Land and Property (Ports) Limited.
"Gaining control of the site was essential for us to be able to move forward with the next stages of the project - finalising the funding agreement with the council and preparing for the submission of a planning application - both of which we hope to do in the new year."
The proposed new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will be a catalyst for the £5.5billion regeneration proposals for north Liverpool which is set to be one of the largest and most transformational in the city's history.
