Newcastle United has released a statement urging its supporters to stop wearing the Saudi Arabia style of dressing to the stadium on match days.
The Magpies confirmed the news on its website on Wednesday, October 20th, 2021. There were a lot of fans who dressed in traditional Arabic clothing in the game against Tottenham on Sunday, October 17th, 2021.
Newcastle United is kindly asking supporters to refrain from wearing traditional clothing or Middle East-inspired head coverings at matches if they would not ordinarily wear such attire. No one among the new ownership group was in any way offended by the attire of the fans who choose to celebrate in this way. It was a gesture that was acknowledged as positive and welcoming in its intent.
However, there remains the possibility that dressing this way is culturally inappropriate and risks offending others. All visitors to the club are, as always, encouraged to wear whatever is the norm for their own culture or religion, continuing to reflect the board and rich multicultural communities and groups from which the club proudly draws its support.
Meanwhile, Newcastle and Steve Bruce have parted ways on mutual consent, the agreement between both parties was taken after taking charge of his 1000th club game as a manager on Sunday.
