AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has apologised to an AFLW fan who was ordered to remove a ‘Yes’ T-shirt during an AFLW match in Queensland over the weekend.
The 32-year-old and her seven year-old daughter were attempting to enter the Lions versus Swans game at Springfield Central Stadium, 35km south west of Brisbane, on Sunday afternoon when the incident occurred.
However, upon arrival, the woman’s “history is calling” T-shirt caught the ire of security at the Brisbane venue who told her she could not enter the stadium.
“We’ve driven 40 minutes, I’ve bought a ticket – am I really being turned away?” she told The Guardian.
“It feels really ridiculous.”
The ABC reported that the woman was eventually allowed to enter the ground after changing her shirt – but not before being told to go to a nearby Big W to fetch another.
