Bayern Munich to have rainbow corner flags for final league game

Bayern Munich will have rainbow flags on every corner of the pitch for their final Bundesliga match of the season against Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

The Bavarians need a point against Frankfurt to secure a seventh successive league title and have chosen their final game to send a message.

Chief executive officer Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club website: “Together with our fan club ‘Queerpass Bayern’, we want to set a clear example of tolerance and diversity, against racism and homophobia.”

Marcus Janke, CEO of the fan club added: “It is a wonderful signal that FC Bayern is positioned as a global club with its values on our side.

“It stands for tolerance against discrimination of any kind, because the rainbow flag is not just a symbol of the gay movement.”
