The Referee’s Body has made the earnest suggestion that the Premier League and the English Football League let players to break their fast during games.
The idea urges the league management to allow football players who are fasting to take a break from the game during iftar so they can have water, food that would give them energy, and vitamins.
The plan is that the officials recognise football players who are fasting before the game and arrange a time for them to break their fast later.
Muslim footballers who observe the Ramadan fast during games, like Riyad Mahrez of Manchester City and Mohamed Salah of Liverpool, could gain from this plan.
It is important to note that on the team’s request, players in the 2021 English Premier League received a 30-minute break for iftar.
The Referee’s Body’s plan may increase diversity in the UK football leagues, and many Muslim players and supporters are likely to support it.
In a first for the team and a Premier League stadium, the Chelsea Foundation will hold an Open Iftar on Sunday, March 26, at Stamford Bridge on the side of the field.
This will take place during Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting from dawn until dusk, which began on March 23.
