Sportswear manufacturer Hummel has taken a major step forward for women’s football and is the first company to produce a kit that includes an integrated hijab. 

This take on a headscarf ensures the players in the Afghan national team are completely covered from head to toe.

Innovation in women’s football

“We do not support the biggest teams in the world, but rather teams and clubs that have a story to tell – just like Afghanistan,” explains Managing Director Christian Stadil.

“We are trying to meet the Afghan population where they are, and right now, women can play football both with and without a hijab.”

Hummel has also supplied the men’s Afghan national team with a new football kit.
