Description: Wales fans attending their first match against the USA in Qatar tonight were confronted by security for wearing rainbow bucket hats.

Fans arriving at the Ahmed Bin Ali stadium told us that they were ordered to remove their hats or face not being allowed in to watch Wales’ historic first World Cup kick-off since 1958.

The hats in question are versions of the iconic Welsh football symbol, designed by LGBT+ football organisation The Rainbow Wall to promote inclusion and equality in the sport.

The news comes just hours after European football associations were told that players wearing ‘One Love’ armbands during matches could be penalised with yellow cards for doing so.

Laura McAllister - a former Wales national football captain herself - told ITV News that she was stopped by security guards who claimed that her hat was “a banned symbol”.
