UK Soccer League Ends Champagne Celebrations Because of Islam
Winners to receive non-alcoholic bubbly to promote tolerance

The winning team of the Football Association Challenge Cup will no longer receive a celebratory champagne gift at the end of the game in deference to players whose religion forbids alcohol consumption.
The FA Cup, the oldest football competition in the world, has traditionally ended with players joyfully spraying sparkling wine on the pitch and drinking it in the clubhouse, but those days have officially come to an end.
“Winning teams will be awarded with non-alcoholic ‘champagne’ for their celebrations in all FA competitions, starting from this year’s Emirates FA Cup Final,” an FA spokesman told the Daily Mail.
“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.”


The Mail reports that the decision was not a result of complaints or outside pressure, but an internal one that has been planned for some time.
“FA chiefs had considered implementing the change sooner but were concerned that they would be branded as ‘party-poopers,’” the paper was told.
Representatives of British Islamic groups praised the decision in statements provided to Sportsmail.

“Such a move can only be seen as a positive step in the direction of inclusiveness and opening the game to everyone whilst accommodating for their different backgrounds and beliefs,” said Anas Altikriti, president of the Muslim Association of Britain.
“We have all recently seen high profile discriminatory incidents in men’s and women’s football towards players from many diverse communities, including those from the Muslim faith,” the Muslim Council of Britain announced.
While many media outlets have tip-toed around the implications of the policy change, Swiss newspaper 20 Minutes published a grim headline that could prove unwittingly prescient down the line:
“Out of respect for Islam, champagne disappears.”

I was staggered when I read this, I bet the WC final in Qatar wont have champers in respect to those who consume alcohol.
Appeasement is not the answer. Yet throughout the world people are bowing to the pressure of violence in an effort to stop it.

I'm not quite sure that's what it is to be honest, although that could very well be it. There is a strange alliance between left wing politics of the west and islam, not sure why since islam is against everything the left is currently fighting for. But with this alliance, and the fact the left pretty much controls everything, media, entertainment, sports, islam has become basically a protected class in our society. So I am not sure why the left capitulates to a backwards, evil ideology, other than the old, the enemy of my enemy is my friend and both groups hate the free market, individual liberty version of conservatism that seems to be on the rise throughout the west.

I'm not sure thats the case, I think it's just basic appeasement and adoption of Islamic culture to try and stop them blowing themselves up and killing other people in the process

Yes it is... A lot of people just don't know it. The richest groups get listened to. Funny it's called the "Emirates" FA Cup

Maybe it's because it's yet another tradition being eroded away from the game in this country. I think the nail has been hit on the head with this one though, it's more to do with money and not wishing to offend a sponsor.

About the ongoing capitulation of our society, a society that is fair, equal, safe, and just to a society that is none of those things. Forgive me for not wanting to see everything western civilization has built be piece by piece broken down and taken away to appease a group of people who hate everything about us.

I don't think western civilisation is built on spraying champagne about at the FA Cup Final.

Perhaps you should look deeper, and not just accept everything, but start questioning some things.

As has been pointed out the FA Cup is sponsored by Emirates airlines, a muslim countries airlines where alcohol is banned, do you think that if British company sponsored an even over there they would even be allowed to consider celebrating it with alcohol ?

We have had religions in this country that have rules about alcohol consumption for hundreds of years, did the FA stop the use of alcohol for them ?

This is pressure from the sponsor, money is involved and fear of the racism tag, that is all it is about.

F1 stopped using Champagne in Muslim countries several seasons ago, but they use MUM Champagne elsewhere, the point you are trying to make is ?
