Football Guidance During Ramadan

Guidance for our football community during the Holy Month of Ramadan

The FA has published guidance to support participants and employees across the footballing community during the holy month of Ramadan, which begins this week.

The annual guide includes information on how fasting and other lifestyle changes during this period may impact participants across adult and youth football, with advice on exercise and nutrition for practising Muslims, as well as guidance for non-Muslim players and staff to ensure their footballing environment is as inclusive and welcoming as possible. 

The guidance, which can be viewed here, was created with input from the Al-Khoei Foundation, the Ramadan Tent Project and Crystal Palace FC’s Dr Zaf Iqbal, and is supported by Kick It Out and the PFA.
