inspiring pro Muslims brings you

Muslims in Pro Football


CONTACT 07496 671145

The biggest and some of the best players in the premier league are Muslim. Kante, Salah, Mane, Mahrez, Pogba, Ozil and Zouma to name a few. The last 3 out of 4 PFA player of the year winners have been Muslim.

Being a professional athlete means a life of high-pressure competition, and hours of gruelling training each day. We believe Muslim athletes can use these same attributes to change the world. To improve the lives of countless others, by following their passion and standing up for their beliefs.

This evening gives the audience an insight into the life of Football stars past and present. Come listen to their journeys of becoming professional footballers, how Islam had a positive influence on their lives and have your chance to ask them questions about being a footballer and positive role model for Muslims
