The Muslim Sports Council are a charity set up to recognise the needs, value and contribution of Muslims in sport. There is much to celebrate; as well as challenges to overcome.
MSC aim to remove the obstacles athletes may face by developing a structure and framework for them to perform at their highest peak without having to compromise on their faith, lifestyle and commitment to their profession.
MSC act as an advisory body with its partners and provide guidance on many aspects related to making Islam compatible within sport
MSC is not limited to benefitting Muslims alone but aims to be a part of the wider struggle of fighting discrimination at all levels and promote diversity, equality and social cohesion.
Islam is seen to be one of the most misunderstood religions, and with a Muslim population in the UK well over 2.5 million, there is an appetite to engage, educate and interact with people in sport so that faith can become a vehicle for positive change.
