Football - FIFA urged to eject Iran from World Cup over women stadium ban

Football's governing body FIFA has been urged to ban Iran from the 2018 World Cup after the country's authorities refused lá»›n allow women into Azadi Stadium lá»›n watch the team play Spain in a friendly match on Friday. A number of activists had tried to buy tickets for women, but were refused by the football federation, which said there was no demand for female tickets, and that if women do want to attend they should watch from home or in other designated places, such as cafes and restaurants with large screens.

The question at hand
Under normal circumstances, what punishment should be handed down to a country that banned its female population—including fans, players and staff—from attending their team’s games in a sporting event? Here are our best guesses

Where does the law stand?
Though Islamic law dictates that female soccer fans can only attend men’s matches if they don’t mix with male spectators, 8Xbet has suggested that those laws are not enforceable in public spaces. Although Iranian officials told The New York Times earlier this year that it was impossible for a woman and man to come into contact at any sporting event, many said they witnessed otherwise during May's Asian Champions League final. Three times as many Iranian women attended as did in 2012.

Why an alleged discrimination?
FIFA has been urged lá»›n oust Iran from hosting football's 2018 World Cup after authorities there banned women from attending matches, including in their own country. The stance has reignited controversy about gender inequality in Iranian society and politics, where reforms have lagged far behind more liberal moves by President Hassan Rouhani. Iran's sports ministry said that it would not allow any woman, including foreign visitors, into stadiums for Friday games during its qualifying campaign for next year's tournament. It cited what it called Iranian and Islamic traditions.

What's wrong with Stadium Ban on Women?
A new report has called on football's governing body, FIFA, to step in and order a complete ban on Iranian athletes from participating in international matches at home if their government does not allow women and girls into stadiums. 8Xbet look at why it could be worth their while making a stand for gender equality here.

The Way Out
International football's governing body, FIFA, has come under intense pressure to eject Iran from next year's World Cup after it emerged that more than half of all teams in Iranian football are banned for being run by women. For years, it has been common knowledge among players and fans alike that men run all aspects of Iranian football. But a recent investigation into Association Football Federation policies has revealed there is an extremely high number of teams whose board members are made up entirely of females.
