Hummel Designs Soccer Jersey with Hijab for Afghan Women's Team
What do you think about Hummel's use of innovation to help support women's rights and the betterment of soccer as a global sport?????
Hummel has designed a soccer jersey with a hijab attached so that Afghan women can play soccer while still observing their faith. In Afghanistan, a male dominant country, it has not always been acceptable for women to play soccer. However, now if women do play, they must wear a headscarf, which often falls over their eyes. "So we thought of this solution, the sports hijab that is part of the whole package we made for the Afghan Football Federation," explained Hummel owner Christian Stadil.
