Earning money through playing football

Q: I have a question on money earned from football, I just want to know if the money is haraam or halaal?

A: If you are referring to a person being hired by a team for playing and taking part in tournaments etc., then this source of income is not permissible. For further details, refer to http://muftionline.co.za/node/7685.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
