The first game since the takeover was against Tottenham Hotspur whereby, a number of supporters turned up in robes and head coverings to watch the clash.
On a statement on Wednesday, the team has urged its fans to refrain from wearing traditional Arabic attire or Middle East-inspired head coverings at games.
"No-one among the new ownership group was in any way offended by the attire of the fans who chose to celebrate in this way. It was a gesture that was acknowledged as positive and welcoming in its intent," the club said.
"However, there remains the possibility that dressing this way is culturally inappropriate and risks causing offence to others."
"All visitors to the club are, encouraged to wear whatever is the norm for their own culture or religion, continuing to reflect the broad and rich multicultural communities and groups from which the club proudly draws its support."
