Ramadan in Football

Ramadan 2024: Nujum Sports Hosting Online Workshop

Learn about what Ramadan is, the do's and do not's, and the best way to support players during this holy month

In partnership with Nujum Sports, Lincolnshire FA are excited to announce an upcoming workshop that provides advice and support for the holy month of Ramadan, and how to support individuals through this period.

In the session, being run ahead of Ramadan beginning, Nujum will provide advice to the coaching groups on how best to support players throughout the month, learning all about Ramadan, giving them a greater understanding of why Muslims fast in the period, the impact this has on the players, and to debunk some of the myths that surround Ramadan.


The details for the workshop are below:

The workshop comes on the back of Lincolnshire FA signing the Nujum Sports Charter to demonstrate its commitment to equality and diversity for all.

With an increase of more Muslim players in the profession as well as support from Muslim fans, Lincolnshire FA sought to sign the Muslim Athlete Pledge to listen, learn, and adopt good practice to help our players flourish and the Muslim members of our grassroots football community feel loved and supported.

The pledge is a commitment and start to recognising Muslim needs in the sport, and a check list addressing Muslim players needs.

This pledge is part of our wider work around equality and diversity and an important aspect for us to understand, grow, and adopt good practice. 

The pledge is the beginning of a journey to be fully accredited with the Nujum Sports Muslim Athlete Charter which will help us strengthen our voice and zero tolerance towards any form of discrimination. 

Jordan Mason, Football Development Officer (Disability & Inclusion), said: "We believe this is a positive step for us as a County FA, and integral to our work with supporting our players. By understanding their faith and cultural needs, we can better position ourselves as a governing body as well as making our players and wider community feel valued and appreciated."
