(Persia Digest) – Iran’s Basketball Federation announced today, 25 February 2018, that women can go to the stadium to watch the Iran-Iraq women’s basketball game in Tehran.
This is the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2019 Asian Qualifiers. The game will take place at 18h00. The presence of women is a distinguishing factor at the games this year. As in the last Premier Basketball League finals or the Volleyball World League games, it is not only designated women who can attend the games, but the general public will be allowed in by the Federation.
As announced by one of its managers, the Ministry of Sports and Youth is seeking a natural process whereby women can attend games in stadiums.
To facilitate travel and access for families and supporters to the games, the Basketball Federation is organizing shuttle bus services from the Azadi Sports Complex underground station to the basketball court of the complex and back from 16h00 to 21h00.
