Bodo/Glimt have asked their fans not to turn up to their game againstArsenalwearing clothing in support of the away side.

There is an official Arsenal supporters club in Norway, whileMartin Odegaardcaptains both the Scandanavian countrys national team and the north London club.

But Bodo/Glimt have told those attending Thursdays game at the Aspmyra Stadion that they will ask them to remove any Arsenal-branded clothing.

A statement said: There are many Arsenal supporters in Norway and many have both Glimt and Arsenal close to their hearts. Therefore, we see it as appropriate to remind you that Arsenal effects are only allowed in the away end.

This means that we will ask you to remove scarves, caps, t-shirts, jackets etcetera if these have the Arsenal logo or similar on them.

However, we make an exception for match scarves or half-and-half scarves as this has become a common thing in stadiums around the world. Half-and-half scarves are the only exception.

There will be some areas on the long sides where Arsenal are entitled to tickets. In these areas and from their guests, we will accept away effects.

Arsenal top group A in theEuropa League, having won their two opening games.

They have played a match less than Bodo/Glimt, who are in third, due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II causing their game against PSV Eindhoven to be postponed.

That match against PSV will be played next Thursday.
