MUNICH WANTED TO LIGHT UP ITS STADIUM WITH RAINBOW COLORS, BUT UEFA SAID NO

European football governing body UEFA has declined a request to light up Munich’s Allianz Arena in rainbow colors for Wednesday’s Euro 2020 match between Germany and Hungary.

The request was made following a proposal from the Munich city council in the wake of an anti-LGBTQ law passed by Hungary’s parliament last week.

The legislation, which has been widely criticized by human rights groups and opposition parties, bans the dissemination of content in schools deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change.

“Given the political context of this specific request — a message aiming at a decision taken by the Hungarian national parliament — UEFA must decline this request.”

UEFA added that it has proposed for Munich to light up the stadium on another date. Tap the link in our bio to learn more.⁠
