Tonight, the Iranian national team will play a match with the Cambodian team in Tehran as part of the qualifying horizontal bar of the World Cup 2022, Interfax writes.
It is noteworthy that for the first time since 1981, women will be allowed into the stadium. The ban, which was introduced almost 40 years ago, also applies to basketball and volleyball games. In Iran, women are forced to dress up as men in order to get to the stadium.
About a month ago, a fan committed suicide after she was sentenced to six months in prison for attending a match. After that, the public called for a boycott of the game until the ban is lifted. As a result, the authorities went to a meeting and allowed the women to come. The sector for them in the stadium was separated from men by empty places and a metal fence.
