President Hassan Rouhani will reportedly allow women in Iran to attend football matches.
The move follows the arrest of 35 women who tried to attend the Esteqlal vs Persepolis match on 1st March, causing international outrage.
According to a report from The Independent, FIFA President Gianni Infantino told reporters following a meeting with Mr Rouhani:
“I was promised that women in Iran will have access to football stadiums soon … He told me that in countries such as Iran these things take a bit of time.”
