The Iranian and Romanian football federations signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) as part of efforts to boost cooperation between the two countries.
The MoU was signed on Thursday at the headquarters of Iran Football Federation in Tehran, the capital of Iran.
The signing saw the participation of Iranian Football Federation president, Mehdi Taj, and his counterpart Razvan Burleanu.
“Iran and Romania football have so many common characteristics, and the European country is available to travel for our teams,” Taj said.
“To develop football in the various areas focusing on the area of girls and women’s football development, coaching, and refereeing are our priorities,” he added.
Iran can also help Romania in beach soccer and futsal since the teams have won medals in the last year, Taj stated.
