Shortly before the end of a game in Iran, a female fan storms onto the pitch and hugs the goalkeeper. As a result, he receives a ban and a fine. But the action now also has far-reaching consequences.

The stadium ban on women in Iran, which was lifted just a few months ago, is reportedly set to come back into force. The Iranian football league has ordered the northwestern Iranian city of Tabris to reintroduce the stadium ban, several media outlets reported unanimously on Wednesday.

The reason given was that “repulsive incidents” occurred when women were present in the Jadegar-Imam Stadium of the Traktor-Sazi club. Those responsible therefore felt compelled to reinstate the ban on women.

It was initially unclear whether the order applies nationwide or just for the megacity of Tabris. Traktor-Sazi is one of the most popular clubs in Iran with hundreds of thousands of fans, including many women.

A hug between a man and a woman – and its consequences

Observers believe that a speedster incident a week ago is the reason for the football league’s latest decision. During the first division game between Esteghlal Tehran and Aluminum Arak, a supporter of Esteghlal goalkeeper Hossein Hosseini stormed onto the pitch and hugged him. In Iran it is generally forbidden to touch women who are not members of the immediate family – the incident was therefore considered a taboo break. For Hosseini, who is also a national goalkeeper, the incident resulted in a fine equivalent to almost 7,000 euros and he was also suspended for one game.

“What should I have done, she just hugged me,” Hosseini said after the game. He said he was surprised and was simply trying to prevent the groundskeepers from using violence against the young woman.

The ultra-conservative clergy who rule Iran are fundamentally against the presence of women in football stadiums. In their opinion, women have no place in stadiums with fanatical male fans and their sometimes vulgar slogans. However, under pressure from the world association Fifa, the ban has been relaxed somewhat in recent years. For a few weeks now, a limited number of women have been allowed into football stadiums.
