UEFA Forbids Maddie Campaign in Luz


Campaign by Everton Restricted

The campaign for Madeleine McCann that the Everton team wanted to do today at the Luz Stadium in the match against Benfica was restricted by UEFA .

The governing body of European football banned the use of allusive t-shirts by the English players and the passage of the girl's picture on the screens of the stadium. It is because of this decision that the campaign will be limited to the stands, where the fans of the English club can use t-shirts saying: "We're still looking for you."

Six thousand t-shirts were made, half written in Portuguese and the other half in English.

Maddie vanished in Praia da Luz, Algarve, in May 2007. The process of investigation was closed without proved conclusions.

The parents defend the thesis of abduction and one of the first pictures of their daughter released to the media shows Maddie wearing an Everton shirt.
