Iran to let women attend football World Cup qualifier

NSD Logo
In Iran, women fans will now be allowed as spectators into the stadium for next football World Cup qualifier match in October. FIFA has been stepping up pressure on Iran to ensure entry of women to watch the match.

A sports ministry official confirmed that women would be able to watch Team Melli - as the national team is known, at their next home game against Cambodia in Tehran's Azadi stadium in October this year.


Iran barred women spectators at matches since the 1979 Islamic revolution, with clerics arguing that women must be protected from the masculine atmosphere. The authorities have allowed foreign women to go to matches in the country in the past.
