Female fans in Iran
 
In my ignorance I didn’t realise that women have effectively been banned from stadiums when men are playing since just after the 1979 Islamic revolution.

WTF!?!?

Fifa are saying they are standing firm to ensure women have access to all football matches. My question is, why have FIFA allowed this to go on for so many years without any sanctions on Iranian football at all? Surely they should’ve been banned from all international competitions until they allow women in?

A 29 year old Iranian woman set fire to herself outside court last month as she awaited trial for trying to attend a match disguised as a man. She died a week later. Unbelievable.

I understand these sanctions are wrapped up in the country’s religion and culture, but surely that can’t be tolerated by the football world?

They’ll be hanging gays next...

Iran can do what they like because Ali Daei is one of the greatest footballers to play the game.

There was a very good film I saw in 2006 called Offside which dealt with this issue. Well worth watching

Because FIFA don't really give a shit about sexism, racism, corruption etc unless it affects the money they make. When it does threaten their money gravy train, they make a lot of noise and then do the absolute minimum to improve things.
