UEFA rejects requests of UK clubs to play national anthem

UEFA has rejected requests from Chelsea, Manchester City, and Rangers to play the national anthem before their Champions League games. Despite their requests being rejected, some supporters will defy the move and sing the anthem before kick-off. The stadium will be filled with the home supporters after the away fans are not permitted to travel to Glasgow.

“There will be no anthems played – this also includes the UEFA Champions League anthem – on the basis of maintaining a consistent pre-match ceremony with a subdued atmosphere and without any celebratory activities across all UK venues to show respect as we did last Thursday,” UEFA said in a statement rejecting a request from clubs to play the national anthem.
