Iran assures FIFA that women fans can attend upcoming World Cup qualifier Updated: 2019-09-23 16:25:48 KST

For the first time in almost 40 years, Iran will allow women to attend a World Cup qualifier.
The president of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, said Sunday that his organization had been assured by Iran that women will be let into the match next month against Cambodia.
FIFA said it'll also be working with the Iranian football federation to enable women to attend matches in the Iranian domestic league as well.
FIFA had demanded that Iran let women into international matches after an Iranian woman set herself on fire and died earlier this month protesting against her arrest for attending a game.
