Finland's FA offers free sports hijabs to boost diversity

AFP, 08 Jun 2021
Finland's football association has begun offering a free "sports hijab" to any player who wants one, in a move designed to attract more players into the sport. So far the FA has distributed "dozens" of the headscarves, which are made out of stretchy fabric, to young players, in a move which has "a symbolic importance" to making the sport more accessible. This month, Finland's men will make their debut appearance at the European Championships, while the country's women's team has also for the first time made the Euro 2021 finals.
