Investing in football clubs

What is the ruling on investing in football clubs in Europe?

Praise be to Allaah.

We put this question to Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen, may Allaah preserve him, who answered as follows:

There are many wrong things involved in football, such as showing the ‘awrah (parts of the body that should be covered) and swearing, etc. Taking part in these things is haraam. So let them look for something else, and Allaah will provide for them.

Shaykh Muhammad ibn Saalih al-‘Uthaymeen
