18 July marked the start of South Asian Heritage Month, a month of activity to explore the shared cultures and histories of the UK and South Asia.
As part of this activity, Faith Associates are working alongside the Football Association and other partners to promote and get more children and adults involved with football, focusing on areas and people who have limited access and facilities.
Faith Associates now have access, through the Football Association and Nike, to the new Nike Pro Hijabs for girls to play football.
A revolutionary wear, the Nike Pro Hijab has been developed to provide the ultimate wear, in a combination of athlete intuition and Nike’s superior performance knowledge. Providing full coverage of the head and neck, this pull-on design brings a personalised fit, ready to adapt to both the wearer’s head shape and her sport.

The FA will also be releasing a content series which highlights positive stories from Asian participants across the game to inspire people within Asian communities to play a bigger part in English football on and off the pitch. You can read more here.
