Iran: Women banned from watching soccer even in theaters

Women in Iran are now banned from watching World Cup and Asian Cup soccer matches in theaters, according to the state-affiliated Khabar Online on Thursday.

The website said, women, who are already banned from going to stadiums to watch soccer games are now barred from theaters that screen the matches as well.

The decision was apparently taken after the Iranian soccer team played against the UAE this week. The game was screened in three theaters in Tehran.

Women will not be able to watch Monday’s game with South Korea.
