Governing body help to increase knowledge of Ramadan and explains how football clubs help to support Muslim players
Last month, The Football Association released a special fact sheet featuring guidance around fasting, prayers and acknowledgements to help highlight the support provided to players observing religious traditions.
The facts sheet, which also features information on how top clubs support players to manage training and playing during periods of fasting and prayer is part of a toolkit created by the FA’s Equality Team to help insure that sport remains inclusive for all.
Show Racism the Red Card (SRtRC) Chief Executive Ged Grebby said “This factsheet is another example of the FA’s commitment to equality. It is important to recognise and respect the beliefs and traditions of everyone who takes part in football at all levels.”
“SRtRC hope that this factsheet and similar initiatives continue to raise knowledge and understanding.”
