MILAN: Fifa has been “assured” by Iranian authorities that women will be able to attend the October World Cup qualifier in Tehran, Gianni Infantino, president of the body said on Sunday.
A female Iranian fan died earlier this month, after setting herself on fire to protest against her arrest for attending a match.
Fifa officials have been in Iran this week discussing preparations for the Oct 10 World Cup qualifier against Cambodia, their first home game of the 2022 qualifying competition.
