UK: FA Cup tradition of champagne for winners to be scrapped —because of Muslims

The Football Association are to scrap the tradition of awarding a case of champagne to the FA Cup winners out of respect for Muslim players.

English football's governing body has a long-held tradition of placing a case of bubbly in the winning dressing room on cup final day as a congratulatory gesture to the victors.

But following internal discussions, the FA are abandoning the idea so not to offend players whose Muslim beliefs forbid alcohol use.

Instead, the FA will put a case of an alcohol-free champagne substitute in the winning dressing room so players can replicate the oft-witnessed spraying celebrations.

"This is to ensure that we are as inclusive as possible to players and communities who may be prohibited from alcohol, as well as any players who are under 18," an FA spokesperson said.

    Its such as you read my mind! You appear to know so
    much about this, such as you wrote the e book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few % to power the message house a little bit,
