BBC: Muslim athletes charter - Premier League clubs sign up to 'first of its kind' code

Brentford feature in BBC article on Muslim athletes' charter

29 June 2021

Saturday 26 June saw the official launch of a historic "first of its kind" Muslim athletes' charter – an idea devised by Ebadur Rahman, founder and chief executive of Nujum Sports, who previously worked for the Football Association.

The charter seeks to "challenge organisations" to make progress in supporting Muslim sportsmen and women, with signatories pledging to "create positive change".

There are 10 points contained within the charter, such as non-consumption of alcohol, including during celebrations, the provision of appropriate places to pray, halal food, and being allowed to fast in Ramadan.

Kevin Coleman, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion at Brentford FC, was quoted in the BBC’s feature. Click the link below to read in full.
