Wakefield Trinity have become the first Super League side to sign the Muslim Athlete Charter.

“I am delighted to launch this charter with a commitment to becoming a more socially diverse and inclusive club,” chief executive Michael Carter said.

“We already do great work across the district, and have great links with the local Muslim community.”

He added: “I want people of the Muslim faith to feel that they can become a part of Wakefield Trinity, whether that is as a player, coach, staff member or fan, and look forward to working progressively together on this charter.”

The charter aims to actively support Muslim athletes at all levels.

Like the Broncos, Trinity say they aim to become fully accredited to the Nujum Sports Muslim Athlete Charterexternal-link in the future.
