Infantino calls Iran to allow women into stadiums
Fifa president Gianni Infantino says Iran must start allowing women into football stadiums. Iranian women have been banned from stadiums when men's teams have been playing since just after the Islamic Revolution in 1979, BBC reports. But Infantino hopes to see a change in place for the country's World Cup qualifier with Cambodia next month.
"Our position is firm and clear. Women have to be allowed into football stadiums in Iran," he said. "Now is the moment to change things and Fifa is expecting positive developments starting in the next Iran home match in October."
