Muslims in Pro Football
First time ever event
Meet them & listen to their journey
Very limited seats. Early bird ends soon.
Professional & 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
