The board of directors of the Quebec Soccer Federation (QSF) has decided to continue its ban on players wearing turbans on field despite a directive by the Canadian Soccer Association to referees last April to permit head coverings on field, CBC News reported.
The QSF had cracked down on players wearing the turban, including the patka and the keski worn by young Sikhs, since last year.
“It was decided that referees in Quebec will apply FIFA’s (Federation of International Football Associations) Law 4, taking into account that the only equipment accepted, and that the only exceptions allowed, are specifically mentioned in Law 4,” the QSF was quoted as saying in a statement.
