Munich's Allianz Arena stadium will not be illuminated in rainbow colours for Germany’s final group game against Hungary at the European Championship on Wednesday. reports citing foreign media that UEFA has declined the Munich city council’s application to have its stadium filled with colours, saying it understands the intention behind the proposal but it “must decline this request” because of its political context.

Munich Mayor Dieter Reiter’s application on behalf of the council made clear the request was to show solidarity with the LGBT community in Hungary after the country passed a new law denounced as homophobic by human rights groups.
