FIFA Lifts Ban On Head Covers Footballers

World football governing body FIFA has officially authorised the wearing of head covers for religious reasons during football matches.

The ruling was made following a meeting of the International Football Association Board   in Zurich and will apply to male and female players.

FIFA secretary General Jerome Valcke said the wearing of head covers had been banned, but a two-year trial started in twenty twelve has proved successful.
