National historic legend banned on foreign stadium

In the following lines you can read how one local tournament should never be played outside its borders [no matter how much money football officials will earn after the selling rights, but if they still want to experience the same (shameful) scenario described below they are freely to do so].
Galatasaray and Fenerbahche was supposed to meet at the Turkiye Super Cup final last Friday night in Saudi Arabia. Nothing has ever suggested that something will go wrong and that this derby would go as planned. Prior to the game the two clubs have agreed to go out and wear the picture of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk (who is the founder of modern Turkiye 100 years ago) on their shirts during warm-up. However, the Saudi football authorities did not allow that to happen so the game was postponed. There was not any explanation from the hosts of why they were bothered with the figure of the politician.
Four days has passed after this news, and until today no one knows whether this game would be even played or not.
