They’re protesting Uefa’s rainbow colour ban.
Amsterdam’s beloved Ajax have pledged their solidarity with LGBT people on Instagram. Their post reads: ‘Ajax & Amsterdam stand for equality. Football is for everyone’, and we’re bursting with pride right now.
The iconic A’dam Tower has also made a statement, illuminated in rainbow colours the Instagram post reads: ‘Tonight I will stand with the City of Munich and support an antidote to a possible @uefa_official punishment for lightning up their Arena in rainbow colors. Hungary’s new anti LGBTQI＋ law is anti basic human rights and anti all values us Europeans stand for. So I will wear my rainbow dress with pride: #onelove‘
Both posts mention Uefa, and that’s because Uefa has banned the Allianz Arena in Munich from displaying rainbow colours on the outside of the building. These colours would have been visible during tonight’s match between Germany and Hungary, and Munich had planned this action to protest the law just passed in Hungary which bans LGBT content in schools.
