We were pleased to welcome Ebadour Rahman from Nujum Sports today to hear about Muslim athlete inclusion and to also present us with our signed Muslim Athlete Charter Certificate of Commitment.

Pictured are Glamorgan Cricketers Mir Hamza and Zain Al Hassan together with Ebadour Rahman Director of Nujum Sports, Dan Cherry CEO, Mark Wallace Director of Cricket and Sameer Rahman Glamorgan Board Director.

Ebadour Rahman of Nujum Sports said “It was an honour spending time with Mark, Sameer, Dan and the rest of the team at Glamorgan, learning about the excellent they are doing to support muslim athletes at Glamorgan. We are super excited to have Glamorgan on board as the latest signatory to the Muslim Athlete Charter."

Mark Frost Community Manager & Diversity Inclusion lead said, “We are delighted to sign up to this charter to ensure that all cricketers who play at Sophia Gardens have all the facilities they need to both practise their faith and to play well so that their visit to Sophia Gardens is a good experience.”

Nujum Sports have been proactive in cricket by holding several learning and education sessions for those that work in cricket to make sure there is a greater understanding of the Muslim faith.  They provide faith advice, expert guidance, and professional counselling while offering support to help athletes navigate personal and professional challenges.
