Women allowed to watch football in Iran

For the second time, Iranian women watched the football match between Perspolis and Sanat Naft Abadan at Tehran Azadi Stadium. Iranian women see the move as a significant step forward for women watching football from the tribunes. While 500 women were given tickets to watch the football match at Azadi Stadium, the Iranian Ministry of Sports declared that women will be invited to other matches if the proper procedures were made.

In Iran, women were allowed to watch the national matches from the tribunes on occasion, but watching the Iran Pro league matches from the stadium was not allowed.
