UEFA declines request to light up the Allianz Arena in rainbow colours

Jordan Rabah, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint

UEFA has declined a request to light up the Allianz Arena in rainbow color prior to Germany’s match against Hungary on the 23rd of June, which is Pride Month.

UEFA states that the reasoning for the request’s denial is because of the “political context”. Many have deemed UEFA’s decision as shameful as it negates that UEFA has the intention of promoting diversity and inclusion, even though they decided to not celebrate pride month with rainbow colors.

The stadium has however been proposed to light the stadium up in rainbow colors on either the 28th of June, or July 3rd-9th. These dates are known as an annual LGBTQ+ celebration which would naturally make sense to light up the stadium in rainbow colors.
