Muslim Athlete Pledge further recognises Muslim needs in sport

- Huddersfield Town sign Muslim Athlete Pledge
- Club have worked with Nujum Sports previously
- Comments from Nujum Sports’ Ebadur Rahman

Huddersfield Town are pleased to have signed the Muslim Athlete Pledge to demonstrate our commitment to equality and diversity for all.

Created by Nujum Sports, the pledge is a commitment to further recognise Muslim needs in the sport, as well as the Club, in order to help address them.

Nujum Sports were set up in 2020 with the aim of promoting a culture of educational excellence for Muslim athletes, from within a caring and secure Islamic environment enriched with the values of discipline, mutual care and respect which extends beyond and in to the wider community.

By signing this pledge, we have taken the first step towards being fully accredited with the Nujum Sports Muslim Athlete Charter and a Nujum Gold Star organisation.

The Club have worked with Nujum Sports previously, when they paid a visit to Canalside earlier this year to hand deliver their Ramadan packages to some of our Academy players. 

By signing the pledge, we are able to continue our journey working with Nujum Sports and hope to continue working with them in order to become fully accredited in the future.

“Having signed the pledge, Huddersfield Town have joined a positive movement of solidarity, equality, and recognition of the contribution Muslims make in their respective clubs and teams.

“Nujum is here to support professional clubs and their players and contribute positively to their equality and diversity agenda. We are here to help them aspire to be even more inclusive and build on the passion and love we have for our respective clubs, players, and fans.”
