Many people are unfamiliar with what is required of a Muslim on a day to day basis. This is the case in all types of work places including mainstream sports. Football is a sport which has turned into a professional career for many Muslims.
Muslims believe Islam is a way of life which provides clear guidelines on how we conduct ourself even when playing or participating in sports activities. Football coaches and clubs have taken a keen interest in educating themselves on matters concerning the Islamic faith to ensure that their Muslim players can accommodated for.
Discover Islam were recently approached by the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) to deliver an Islam awareness training session to Bedfordshire football coaches in August 2015. The training session was delivered to PFA, regional football coaches and members of Luton Town’s football management team.
Very good and informative training – If we could get Discover Islam on national TV to talk in that way then many problems and misconceptions would disappear![Kevin Thoburn, Head of Community Trust, Luton Town Football Club 2020 Ltd]
