LGBTQ: UEFA Rejects Request To Light Up Allianz Arena Stadium In Rainbow Colors For Euro 2020 Game

Published

on

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.

Following a proposal from the Munich city council in the wake of an anti-LGBTQ law passed by Hungary’s parliament last week, the request to light up the stadium was made.

The new legislation bans the dissemination of content in schools deemed to promote homosexuality and gender change.

In a cross-party proposal submitted by Munich city council, the idea to illuminate the Allianz Arena in rainbow lights was to “give an important and visible sign of solidarity towards the LGBTI Community in Hungary, those who suffer under the current tightened homophobic and transphobic Hungarian government legislation.”

But UEFA have now rejected the request saying it will not get involved in politics.

“Racism, homophobia, sexism, and all forms of discrimination are a stain on our societies — and represent one of the biggest problems faced by the game today,” UEFA said in a statement on Tuesday, June 22.

“Discriminatory behavior has marred both matches themselves and, outside the stadiums, the online discourse around the sport we love.

“However UEFA, through its statutes, is a politically and religiously neutral organization. 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 either on June 28, which marks Christopher Street Liberation Day, or between July 3 and July 9, which is Christopher Street Day week in Munich.

Christopher Street Liberation Day recognizes the 1969 Stonewall riots and the march in New York City that took place a year later – now considered the first gay pride parade.
