The IFAB agreed to unanimously approve – temporarily during a trial period – the wearing of headscarves. The design, colour and material permitted will be defined and confirmed following the IFAB Annual Business Meeting in Glasgow in October.

Currently there is no medical literature concerning injuries as a result of wearing a headscarf, and therefore the decision taken today will be reviewed at the IFAB Annual General Meeting in 2014.

    French Football Federation (FFF) decided that wearing headscarves – in spite of IFAB decision – will remain forbidden in French feminine football, “in respect of French constitutionnal principles and national laws about laicity which are prevailing in our country and are part of our rules”.
