FIFA have reportedly made a surprising U-turn concerning the rainbow flag which will now no longer be prohibited at Qatar’s eight World Cup stadiums from the next round of matches. The host nation are said to have provided FIFA with assurances that supporters can enter stadiums wearing rainbow colors following a tense opening week that saw FIFA announce a ban on the OneLove captain’s armband.

Seven nations were set to wear the political symbol of inclusion and diversity before FIFA threatened captains with a one-match ban if anyone wore them.

According to reports, fans will now be able to wear rainbow-themed clothing from the next round of group matches despite Qatar’s strict laws surrounding homosexuality.

Large numbers of supporters at the tournament have already had items confiscated on their way into the stadiums – including bucket hats, flag and t-shirts.
