Atta B&W

Atta Yaqub


Atta has been involved in sport for over 20 years, having founded one of our member organisations Glasgow Ansar (All Nations Sports Arts and Recreation). This role has taken various responsibilities from running teams to fundraising, and it’s a passion that Atta still keeps actively involved with.

His professional career has been focussed on Equalities, Community Engagement and Youth Development. This has seen him work across the corporate and third sector landscape with organisations including The Scottish Football Association, Show Racism the Red Card and The Princes Trust, from where he joins Sported after over 5 years in a number of different roles.

Atta is still involved in sports not only through playing the occasional 11 aside football game, but also running an academy – giving young people opportunities into mainstream sports. His other interests include the arts where he sits on the steering group for the National Theatre of Scotland
