Nuzum Sports founded in the year 2020 by former Football Association player Abdur Rahman. Its aim was to provide opportunities to Muslim athletes according to their potential. Nuzum Sports prepared a ten-point structure for the year 2021.

Former Yorkshire player Rafiq first spoke of racism in English cricket in September 2020. He spoke publicly about his experiences of racism and revealed the discrimination people have faced against him. Rafiq told ESPN Cricinfo that the club faced “institutional racism”. The club had left him close to taking his own life. A year later, former Yorkshire Academy players also came forward.
