FIFA tells Iran it is time to allow women into stadiums

first_imgRelatedPosts Super Eagles soar on FIFA ranking COVID-19: FIFA count cost to football Blatter faces probe in Switzerland FIFA President, Gianni Infantino, has told Iran it is time to allow women into football stadiums and that the global soccer body expects “positive developments”, starting with their next home match in October. While foreign women have been allowed limited access to matches, Iranian women have been banned from stadiums when men’s teams have been playing, since just after the 1979 Islamic revolution. Infantino said in a FIFA statement he was hopeful that the Iranian football federation and government authorities had been receptive to “our repeated calls to address this unacceptable situation”. He added: “Our position is clear and firm. Women have to be allowed into football stadiums in Iran. “Now is the moment to change things and FIFA is expecting positive developments starting in the next Iran home match in October.” Iran, who have qualified for five World Cup finals, including each of the last two, host Cambodia on October 10 in their first home game of the 2022 qualifying competition. This month, a female fan died after setting herself on fire to protest against her arrest for attending a match. Sahar Khodayari, dubbed “Blue Girl” for the colours of her favourite team Esteghlal, died in hospital after her self-immolation outside a court where she feared being jailed for six months, having attended the match in disguise as a man.Khodayari’s death has caused widespread outrage in Iran and internationally, prompting calls on social media for Iran’s football federation to be suspended or banned by FIFA. Critics say FIFA’s own statutes hold discrimination on grounds of gender punishable by suspension or expulsion. There were signs the situation regarding female fans in Iran was changing when a group of women was permitted to attend the second leg of the Asian Champions League final in Tehran last November, a match where Infantino was present. Female fans, however, have been denied access to matches since. At Iran’s friendly against Syria in June, women were locked out of the Azadi Stadium and detained by security forces. Infantino said a FIFA delegation was now in Iran. “I am looking forward to hearing good news from them,” he said.Tags: FIFAgianni infantinoIranlast_img read more

Garry Monk urges players to put Swansea first

first_img Press Association Others like Wales pair Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor and Iceland playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson have invested a lot of emotion in the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. “You would have to be superhuman for that not to affect you,” Monk said in the wake of Iceland having qualified for their first major tournament and Wales on the brink of doing so for the first time in 58 years. “But the players need to understand that in the club it is back to focusing on your job. That is what gets you to the other things. “The only reason why people talk about international football is because of how well people are playing for their club. “It’s understandable that friends, family, agents and the media are all talking about other things. But they are a distraction and we should be good enough to deal with all that and focus on Swansea City.” And Swansea manager Monk feels the effects of international football on his cosmopolitan squad has played its part in their struggles over the past month. “This year is different to any other what with the TV rights and the players trying to fight for international places and qualification,” Monk said. “I have to make sure that all the focus is on Swansea and what we are doing here. We need to make sure all of these things are left elsewhere and that we concentrate on Sunday. “There is already (media) talk about the international break coming up, the squad announcements, and who could qualify for what. “Those debates are happening while we are still playing games for Swansea and it’s understandable the players should be thinking about those things. “But the players have to be very clear, and I’ve spoken to them about this, that anything before those matches is all about Swansea City. “I feel the last international break had a little effect on our performances and consistency, and the players are now aware of that.” Swansea are far from being alone in having players on international duty but Andre Ayew and Ki Sung-yueng travelled more than most during the last break at the start of September. After making an excellent start to the campaign in which they took eight points from their first four Barclays Premier League games, including drawing at Chelsea and beating Manchester United at home, Swansea have not won since the last international break. They have picked up only one point from three league games, a goalless home draw with Everton sandwiched between defeats at Watford and Southampton, and also crashed out of the Capital One Cup to Sky Bet Championship club Hull. Garry Monk has told his players to forget about impending international duty as Swansea seek to get their season back on track against Tottenham on Sunday.last_img read more

Colby Covington believes Dana White ‘absolutely’ wants him to lose UFC 245 title fight

first_imgLike @POTUS @realDonaldTrump always says: Promises made. Promises kept. Pleasure to finally meet you Mr. President. Thank you for always putting America first! #maga #GreatAmericanWinningMachine 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/yYZWkdd5wS— Colby Covington (@ColbyCovMMA) August 2, 2018But then the wheels came off the tracks in Covington’s mind. He says the UFC wanted to book him vs. then-170 pound champion Tyron Woodley at UFC 228 in September 2018 to determine an undisputed champion. Covington couldn’t take the fight due to having to have nasal surgery, and subsequently, the organization removed him as the interim titleholder. Then White said Covington turned fights with Usman and Woodley, which Covington has denied.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearLeading into his quest for the gold, which culminates at Saturday’s UFC 245 when he battles current titlist Kamaru Usman, the 31-year-old feels it’s been one lie after another from White that has him fed up to the point he’s lost respect for his boss and that he doesn’t want Covington to leave the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as the welterweight champion.”Absolutely, he doesn’t want me to win the belt,” Covington told Sporting News. “And l love it. That’s what drives me to be great and to keep the UFC great. “He’s treated me like s— so I’m going to treat him like s—. He’s also the same guy that stripped me of America’s title, the people’s title, for no reason. I went to the UFC doctors to get nose surgery. They wanted me to turn around from a five-round fight with Rafael dos Nachos (Anjos) with six weeks notice. I still get an assurance from him that I would fight the winner of Tyron Woodley-Darren Till. And after that fight, I get passed up again. He lies to me again. And that was when Marty Fake Usman got to fight Woodley. He comes up to me at that fight and tells me that I’ll fight the winner. I promise you that. But then I have to go through Robbie Lawler. They (the UFC) come up to me and tell me that I have no choice, and I have to fight Robbie Lawler or I’ll never get a title shot again and lock you into a contract.”I’m so sick of getting treated like this. I get all these unfulfilled promises and disrespect. I’m not going to respect people who disrespect me.”The UFC 245 main event is as personal as it gets. The words exchanged between Covington and Usman have been harsh, including an incident when they almost came to blows in a buffet line the day after Usman beat Woodley to capture the title at UFC 235. “As a person, I don’t like how fake he is,” Covington said. “He’s always lying to the media. He’s trying to say he’s from Nigeria. He was born in Dallas and went to college in Nebraska. Also, he’s trying to say he’s more American than me. Who is more American than me? My family served in the military. What’s his family served besides being in federal prison?” Covington enters UFC 245 as the underdog. It’s a role he doesn’t mind because he feels in his heart there’s no way Usman can beat him. And when ring announcer Bruce Buffer announces him as the new UFC welterweight champion, it’s not White that Covington wants to put the belt around his waist. It’s political activist Candace Owens.”Chaos” proceeds to send White a message if he refuses Covington’s request.”Dana White is not allowed to put that title around my waist, and he knows that,” Covington emphatically said. “After UFC 244 and the fight for the Bernie Sanders participation trophy, they had The Rock put the title around the waist of the Street Judas, Jorge Masvidal. If they do that, then I want Candace Owens to wrap the belt around my waist as she will be front row in attendance. If she doesn’t wrap the belt around my waist, then I feel bad for Dana White.” Things appeared to be right in the world between Colby Covington and UFC president Dana White in August 2018. Covington was coming off a dominant performance over Rafael dos Anjos at UFC 225 to become the interim welterweight champion. He’s the type of guy White seems to like because he’s an excellent talker who can then back it up inside the Octagon.When you combine those factors, more than often not, it’s a license to print money. Covington looked to be well on his way to becoming one of the next big stars for the organization when he became the first UFC fighter to appear at the White House, meeting with President Donald Trump. last_img read more
