Why this match was special
The game at the Azadi Stadium, be that as it may, was as outstanding for the nearness of 3,500 female fans, who were permitted into the arena in Tehran for a World Cup qualifier without precedent for the four decades since the Islamic Revolution. This made a way for a new wave for upliftment of women in iran’s society where they are very much dominated by their male counterparts. With the events like these slowly and slowly the change can be felt in other areas too. Because of removal of that ban on women to see soccer match , the stands in Tehran’s Azadi Stadium were loaded up with female fans rooting for the Iranian national group as it squashed Cambodia 14-0.

As the AP notes, Iran was the last nation to at present restriction ladies from matches.
