About the movement

End ban on head-covering in international basketball

VICTORY! On May 4, 2017, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) approved a rule change to permanently give players the ability to wear religious headwear during competition after a three-year movement on helped turn global awareness into action on this cause. The rule will go into effect in October 2017.
